Land-Based Test Site (LBTS) for a Naval Combat System
Military | Test-Sites | Naval Combat Systems
Construction of critical operational systems, like a Naval Combat Management (CMS) system are changing their paradigm: years ago, proprietary solutions developed completely in-house were common. Nowadays, the trend is to develop a CMS by the integration of many components and subsystems from other partners or even from COTS.
Test-sites have been always important to perform the integration and Verification&Validation (V&V) stages of the development cycle of a CMS. With the latest trend of integrating more than building the system, its importance has become capital for the success of the project.
In this case, Simware is used as the simulation platform to build a LBTS for the Navantia's CATIZ combat system. CATIZ overall objective is the creation of a Command and Control System of new generation for the use in the vessels exported by Navantia.
CATIZ is based on the experience gained by Navantia working in previous projects and uses Commercial off the shelf (COTS) and open standards, having a modular, flexible and scalable architecture, open to customer requirements.
CATIZ's LBTS is leveraging many components of Simware platform:
