Boeing Vigilare system completes site acceptance testing


RAAF BASE WILLIAMTOWN (BNS): Boeing Monday said the company's Vigilare network centric command and control system (NC3S) has completed site acceptance testing at the Eastern Regional Operations Centre (EROC) at Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Base Williamtown.

NC3S is Boeing Defence Australia's international Vigilare product. It combines information in near real-time from a wide range of platforms, sensors, tactical data links and intelligence networks to deliver tactical and strategic surveillance operations and battlespace management in the air and joint domains.

The live inputs from these sources present a unified operational picture to the operator at single or multiple operational centers, Boeing said.

During the site acceptance testing conducted from March 7-18, Boeing demonstrated that EROC is successfully interfacing with all external systems and that Vigilare has the full range of system functionality to provide enhanced battlespace management and surveillance operations for the RAAF.

EROC's final test is an operational test taking place from March 28 to April 8. Operational testing prepares EROC for conditional acceptance, which is the last milestone before final system acceptance from the Commonwealth of Australia. NROC, located at RAAF Base Tindal, Northern Territory, has been operational since Sept. 2.

Vigilare, the RAAF's ground-based air defense system, consists of two operations centers, NROC and EROC, which are equipped with operator consoles and equipment to form a recognized wide area surveillance picture that is distributed to national command and control centers.
