Since 2009, Shoal has been at the forefront of the conceptual design of the Australian Defence Force’s future air defence capabilities. We initially applied our model-based conceptual design methods to the Army’s Counter – Rocket, Artillery and Mortar (C-RAM) sense, warn and locate capability, which has been employed to protect deployed personnel.
Following on from the C-RAM design work, Shoal has further applied our model-based conceptual design capability to the conceptual design of the future tactical air defence systems under project LAND 19 Phase 7B, and the future Joint battle management system and medium-range ground-based air and missile defence system to be delivered under project AIR 6500.
We have also applied our model-based conceptual design methods to support the capability definition and program management of integrated air and missile defence at the Defence Program level, further demonstrating the advantages of a model-based approach in managing highly complex capabilities.
