Vigilare – Provision of GFS

A number of CRONDO engineers provided systems engineering services within Project AIR5333 – Vigilare. As part of the Government Furnished Services (GFS) Team, CRONDO engineers were responsible for the delivery of GFS to the Prime integrator, Boeing Defence Australia. GFS provided ground data and voice communication interfaces which directly supported RAAF’s Recognised Air Picture (RAP) to higher Defence headquarters. CRONDO engineers were responsible for designing, developing, integrating and testing these interfaces, which connected to numerous sources via a communications network, namely the Vigilare Communications Infrastructure (VCI). The CRONDO team supported Chief Information Officer Group (CIOG) staff in the integration of the delivered VCI network, which included verification and validation of the VCI.

Following the successful delivery of the Vigilare System, CRONDO provided a project manager / engineer to the Air Defence Ground Environment (ADGE) section of the Ground Telecommunications Equipment Systems Program Office (GTESPO), now known as Surveillance and Control SPO. Engineering services provided included project management and system engineering to upgrade voice interfaces. These upgrades included the management of a small team to design, develop, integrate, test and deliver a new capability supporting communications between Air Battle Managers and Air Traffic Management. All tasks were achieved on time and within budget and exceeded all stakeholder expectations, as the new capability provided the RAAF with additional capability they had been lacking for many years.
