2nd version
(BU1)
•
1st version was successfully tested in Factory (Factory System Test) in 2008 and in live
environment [System Test I-1 (STI-1) at System Test and Validation Facility (STVF)
located in the NPC] in 2009.
Major change integrated in the contract in 2007: Block Upgrade 1 (BU1) (mainly in
CAOC functionalities changes)

–
ACCS BU1 was successfully tested in factory in September 2011 and in live environment
System Test I-2 at STVF completed in March 2013 (with test under simulated peak load
conditions)
Following test performed & completed in 2 Validation Nations (BE, GE) and on-going in the two
remaining ones (FR & IT)
Final tests performed in multi-site configuration: System Test III
Up to Provisional Software Acceptance forecasted mid 2014

1. Operational requirements evolve:
– Operational needs regularly expressed by SHAPE (roadmap towards ACCS IOC) like JTS
interface, JCHAT capability
– Initial Operational Tests & Evaluations (IOT&E) after each live environment System Tests on site
bring potential new requests
•
1st IOT&E STI-1 in 2009 revealed shortfalls => improvements in Air Mission Control, workflow & HMI
grouped in a Spiral 1 enhancement.
•
Spiral 1 awarded in October 2011 successfully tested in factory in Jul 2013 will be merged with BU1
for final test STIII up-front PSWA
•
Work under preparation to introduce JTS interface and JCHAT capability towards ACCS IOC
•
Potentially Shortfalls from future IOT&Es (STI-2, STII & STIII) might also lead to additional Spirals

Technical evolutions
2. Meanwhile technology is also evolving
•
Communication means: from point to point connectivity to networked connectivity (significant
communications expenses savings) => NATO General Segment System (NGCS) NATO secure
communication network contracted mid 2012.
•
Communication standard protocol: commercial world evolving towards so-called Everything over the
Internet => contracted mid 2012.
•
Radar Network connection (RADNET) contracted by mid 2012.
Those technical evolutions will be integrated within the appropriate timeline (before PSWA or during In
Service Support through replication contract activities).

ACCS LOC1 Test Process
Test &Evaluation
DT&E
IOT&E
• Developmental Test &
Evaluation (DT&E)
• Initial Operational Test
& Evaluation (IOT&E)
• DT&E verifies that the
system performs as
required in its intended
environment
• IOT&E evaluates that
the system is operationally
effective and suitable
• IOT&E is conducted by
AirC2PO&S with
Contractor support
• DT&E is conducted by
ACSI and its
Subcontractors / Partners
