New Tasking: UK MOD tasks SyntheSys to provide TDL test and acceptance expertise

SyntheSys today announces acceptance of a 14 month contract to support the Project Team (PT) for the A400M military transport aircraft to progress the MIDS/Link 16 integrated test evaluation and acceptance plan (ITEAP).  The project also includes ongoing MIDS integration support to the A400M MIDS/Link 16 programme.

This kind of testing is no mean feat; TDL testing is a through-life activity from checking the theoretical implementation, through standards conformance testing, to live trials.  It is conducted through both paper-based scrutiny and rig-based testing.  SyntheSys’ proven experience of developing test strategies, preparing test scripts, and analysis makes the company number one choice for this task.  Utilising its ‘VECTOR’ portfolio of testing services, the Company is able to apply comprehensive systems engineering practices to establish evidence that systems operate correctly and interoperate effectively with other military platforms, not only adding overall value to any given project but ensuring that our armed services are operating with the best quality equipment.

‘We look forward to supporting the A400M PT in setting to work platform acceptance’ commented SyntheSys’ Technical Director, John Miller.  ‘This is another great example of the way in which our VECTOR services combine our TDL expertise and use of the Multi-Link Test Facility program to provide a very low cost and effective way of assuring tactical communications systems requirements are delivered.’
