Orbital motion simulator
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of the present project is to design a system, on request by Kongsberg Protech Systems, that will enable rotation of a remote weapon station in isolation to, and in parallel axes offset to, a rotating turret in a test simulation laboratory. The project plan aims to describe the approach that will be used to deliver the intended product. KPS have numerous customers that request to have the RWS mounted onto a turret-carrying vehicle. The possibility to adjust the centre of the RWS away from the centre of the turret in the Turret Simulator is necessary in order to acquire specific data and develop software that supports the various set-ups required by customers. The scope is delimited to include mechanics and mechatronics, while computational control and electronics is intended to be developed in future projects. The needs of the primary stakeholders; mainly HSN and KPS; are presented, along with the proposed method of decomposing the requirements and ensuring traceability. The major milestones and an estimate of the time schedule required for various activities are concisely presented, while the extensive Gantt chart provides time frames for each activity that must be held in order to deliver the product as planned. The CAFCR+ model will be used to guide the system development through structured steps from basic understanding of stakeholder needs, concept development and detailed design. Nine iterations are planned, of which the content is planned to ensure well reasoned system development through multiple viewpoints. Numerous risks pertain to the planning, execution and finalisation of larger projects. An extensive set of risks has been identified, along with accompanying mitigation strategies. The most critical risks pertain largely to requirement identification and management, which are to be addressed by numerous measures in planned iterations. The developed Risk Matrix is planned to be revisited throughout the project period, to ensure that execution of the project runs as according to that stated in the Project Plan.
