The OSAT is the culmination of months of technical configuration and the physical work to install and commission the range and demonstrating the capabilities and handover to the client.
Using the required Shooting Practices, the OSAT will prove that the range functions as required to enable the customer to accept that the system performs in the manner it was designed.
On successful completion, the range will be handed over to the customer and the project enters the Defect Liability Period (DLP) which will run for a 12-month post-handover period.
As an activity the OSAT is where the ATS team demonstrate that their professionalism and hard work has delivered the approved system to the customer and that another world leading range system has been delivered on time and budget.
Simply put: ATS demonstrates Australians supporting Australians who serve in the Profession of Arms charged with the duty to defend Australia and its interests in demanding and complex environments around the globe.
Please be watching next week for the film release about the upgrade.
