Vigilare has completed final fractory testing.

Boeing has announced that the Vigilare Network Centric Command and Control System (NC3S) it is delivering to the RAAF has passed its final factory and tactical datalink (TADIL) acceptance tests.

The company says the final tests were performed at its Systems Integration Laboratory (SAL) in Brisbane to prepare the system for its integration into the Eastern Regional Operations Centre (EROC – formerly EASTROC) at RAAF Williamtown.

“The tests mark the final engineering release of the system and formally verify that Boeing has met 95 per cent of the requirements for Vigilare,” Charles Toups, Boeing’s vice president and general manager of Network & Tactical Systems, said. “The remaining requirements will be met during EROC site acceptance testing in early 2011.”


The tests, which were held in mid October, verified the system’s enhanced data processing and display, fault detection and isolation, and interactive replay requirements with a 98 per cent compliance rate, while the TADIL test verified the system’s data link software for final EROC acceptance.
