1.1.1The aim of the Operational and Support Concept Document (OSCD) is to provide a basis for common understandings by all stakeholders and system developers. It details the following in relation to the Mission System and Support System:
1.1.2Mission System. The Mission System is that element of the capability that directly performs the operational function. For LAND 17 the Mission System is considered to consist of Battle Management System-Fires (BMS-F), Delivery Platforms and modular charge systems. The delivery platforms shall be based on the two platform capabilities as endorsed at Government First Pass, that is, SPH and lightweight towed howitzers.
1.1.3Support System. The Support System is the organisation of hardware, software, material, facilities, personnel, technical data, processes and services required to enable the Mission System and the Support System to be effectively supported so that the Mission System can meet its operational requirements. The Support System embraces the Commonwealth, In-Service contractors and In-Service subcontractors.
1.2.1LAND 17, Artillery Replacement Project, seeks to enhance the indirect fire support capability of the ADF. The project will replace and enhance Army’s Indirect Fire System (IFS). Specifically, the LAND 17 Mission System will address the tactical joint fires artillery command and control system (BMS-F) and delivery platforms requirements of the IFS. The project will also meet the various integrated logistic support (ILS) requirements including training support, facilities and all aspects of Through Life Support (TLS).
1.3.1The five sub-systems of the IFS are:
1.3.2Each of these subsystems is applicable to the IFS although the extent to which they are impacted by LAND 17 will vary. LAND 17 will seek enhanced performance by either replacement or enhancement of each sub-system (or elements within it). Specifically for the ammunition sub system enhancement will be through increased range provided by increased calibre and chamber capacity in the delivery platform and its associated modular charge system. For the Target Acquisition sub system; Joint Offensive Support Team (JOST) target location, designation and digital terminal control devices will be acquired, however, other Target Acquisition devices such as the Weapon Locating Radar (ANTQP 36), Ground Surveillance Radar (AMSTAR) will not be acquired.
1.4.1LAND 17 is to interface with existing and planned enhancements to ADF capability. These are detailed below. In particular, LAND 17 will not seek to acquire:
1.4.2LAND 17 will seek to acquire 52 calibre modular charge systems and enhanced performance munitions (such as Artillery Delivered High Precision Munitions (ADHPM) in the form of Course Correcting Fuses (CCF)). The enhanced performance munitions will be acquired at a later phase of the project. Other forms of ADHPM such as Trajectory Corrected Munitions (TCM) and Sensor Fused Munitions (SFM) will be purchased under other Major Capital Projects.
