  • Platform integration and acceptance trials, including naval harbour and sea trials
  • Platform firing trials
  • Conduct and support failure investigation and isolation activities across the system

  • Systems Integration
  • System Qualification and Proving
  • System Assessment and Acceptance
  • Software Test
