Following on from our short AGM, there will be a joint presentation between MoD & Industry about the Land Systems Reference Centre (LSRC). Our guest speakers are from MoD; Sopra Steria and iTrinegy. The presentation will discuss the benefits of an MOD owned test facility and how test is essential for providing effective communications on deployed operations, whilst reducing the risk that deployed personnel are asked to use sub-optimal CIS.
The Land Systems Reference Centre (LSRC) provides the MOD with an independent through life ‘System of Systems’ Test and Reference service. It delivers an appropriate test, integration and transition capability that assures release packages for introduction onto the Defence Network and in support of operations and exercises.
From providing direct support to deployed operations, conducting problem identification and resolution activities and hosting Mission Rehearsals through to assisting research and development programs to bring innovation to Defence, the LSRC is well placed to support any MOD sponsored CIS Project. Well-appointed, the LSRC is a purpose built secure building with suitably qualified and experienced personnel, reference equipment that mirrors that which is held at readiness for Contingent Operations, connectivity to the MOD’s fixed infrastructure and the test tools necessary to both monitor a system under test and to constrain and congest it to closely emulate the network conditions in which deployed systems have to operate; it is uniquely placed to de-risk Defence C4ISR.
Over the 20 years of the LSRC’s existence, the systems being supported by the facility have changed many times but the need for independent, repeatable testing remains. The LSRC provides a range of test capabilities, underpinned by the use of ‘best of breed’ test equipment, that ensures that the MOD is able to manage its CIS systems.
