Examples of System Integration and Solutions that Codarra has provided include:
- Development of the Electrical Loads Analysis software tool for Blackhawk helicopters. This is now widely used by aircraft manufacturers and operators in North America. This software has provided time savings of over 75% and allows much greater rigour and “what-if” analysis compared to more traditional spreadsheet approaches.
- The development of a number of surveillance systems through the integration of commercial-off-the-shelf equipment.
- Design and production of Radio-Frequency (RF) detectors for the Royal Australian Army to undertake studies into radio utilisation and associated RADHAZ analysis.
- The development of a number of robotics vechicles, using these in turn to support further R&D.
- Other larger projects undertaken that involved large scale system integration are below.
Headquarters Joint Operations Command (HQJOC) Command, Control, Communications, Computing and Intelligence (C4I)
Project JP 8001 Phase 2B, HQJOC was delivered for operational testing on schedule on 14 November 2008 on time to the day.
Codarra Advanced Systems engaged to project manage the Command, Control, Communications, Computing and Intelligence (C4I) capability for the Headquarters Joint Operations Command (HQJOC) being established at Bungendore in regional NSW. The aim of this project was to integrate the various agencies responsible for the planning and execution of military operations in a state-of-the-art headquarters which is equipped with the world’s best practice command and control systems.
The HQJOC C4I project was developed in four stages, as follows:
Stage 1 included the development of the system specification and preparation of the tender documentation for the role of the C4I Primary System Integrator (PSI). This stage also included significant consultation with the C4I stakeholders and preliminary C4I system accreditation and logistic support activities.
Stage 2 included design approval of the C4I systems and on-going active C4I system accreditation and logistic support activities.
Stage 3 included on-going active C4I system accreditation and logistic support activities. It also included the review and approval of the test and acceptance plans for the active C4I systems.
Stage 4 included system delivery, installation, test and acceptance. It also included the resolution of outstanding issues, system accreditation and project closure.
In addition to the primary tasks above, Codarra developed a database to assist in management of this project, provide the COMSEC custodian role for all crypto and key material and undertook the systems integration of some network and audio-visual elements.
