Technical Support

Integrated Logistics

AR's experienced ILS team understand that the cost of in-Service support is often significantly more than the cost of the original procurement. Management of ILS through-life therefore requires a disciplined approach in line with Defence Standard 00-60 guidance.

 

Our experienced ILS practitioners deliver support to multinational programmes with complex integrated capabilities.  Examples include our delivery of support to the MoD Attack Helicopter Capability Sustainment Programme with the development of the Support Solution Strategy and planning documents for the Attack Helicopter Capability Sustainment Programme Main Gate Business Case submission. The result was the successful delivery of essential advice, guidance, products and evidence for the equipment support solution assurance and acceptance within challenging time frames.  Another example of our recent work was the delivery of support to Future Anti Surface Guided Weapon (FASGW) MoD Delivery Team where we provided supportability engineering advice and guidance for Main Gate approval.   The FASGW Programme was a commercially complex programme with 5 projects delivered across 4 Industry suppliers under separate and unique contracts.

 

Whether delivering discrete ILS products/activities or an outcome against the support requirements, we recognise the importance of maintaining currency within Integrated Logistic Support and Supportability Engineering.  Our ILS Consultants maintain contact and engagement with the DE&S ILS Policy and Support Solutions Improvement Teams to ensure the support is not only compliant with the current policies and processes, but with an awareness of future strategies.

 

Our business processes underpin our approach to ILS and are fully embedded within our ISO 9001-2015 AS 9100 Rev D accredited Business Management Systems.

 • APM Practitioner • PRINCE2 Foundatio

Our consultants are able to bring vast and varied experience of managing Projects within the MoD and the wider Defence arena.

Risk

AS9100 standards require rigorous establishment, implementation, and maintenance of a process for managing risk which include: establishing responsibilities for risk management, defining risk criteria, detailed assessment, communication of risks, and careful and appropriate implementation of actions to mitigate risks.

 

We adopt a comprehensive holistic approach to ‘Risk, Issues and Opportunities Management, with its roots cemented in our Business Management Systems processes and procedures that are certified and considered ‘best practice’ under AS9100D Aerospace Standards.

 

Our long term contracted position as the Independent Technical Evaluator for the F35B Lightning programme is a key example in testing our rigorous Risk Management framework.  Furthermore, our Risk Management Procedures require the establishment of Risk Severity bands - High, Medium and Low, and risk scores which not only determine the severity of individual risks but also determine the risk priority, with a view to the level of risk mitigation or ‘trade-offs’.

 

We have the necessary experience and track record to identify your risks and establish a framework to manage risks through life.

Safety

Aviation Requirements delivers specialist Safety Engineering and Safety Management to Fixed and Rotary Wing MOD Air Platform Delivery Teams through all phases of the project lifecycle.

Our highly experienced suitably qualified & experienced consultants can support you in the following example areas:

  • Development of Safety Management Plans
  • Development and maintenance of effective Safety Management Systems (SMS)
  • Safety Case Development
  • Operating Safety Case Support
  • Development of safety process and procedure for Acquisition and In-service Platforms equipment and services

AR conducted a full scale Birdstrike test (in conjunction with our partner test house) on Chinook windshields.  The windshields on RAF Chinooks were not subjected to Birdstrike testing during qualification and the ability to sustain impacts in line with certification requirements was unquantified.  As a result, Aviation Requirements tested, characterised and recorded through high speed photography and video, Birdstrike damage in line with Def Stan 00-970 Part 7 requirements.  The results and advice provided by Aviation Requirements enabled the Chinook Type Airworthiness Authority to quantify the risk and update the Safety Case Reports, Hazard Logs, Loss Model and Risk Register.
