MHP External V&V Consortium Proposal

Building a team to provide External V&V and real-time simulation-based testing for the Maritime Helicopter Project (MHP)

examples of v v contracts on large projects
Examples of V&V contracts on large projects
  • Governments encourage Independent V&V on major projects
  • Value-added External V&V improve product safety, quality and save money
external v v consortium offering
External V&V Consortium Offering
  • Services for Maritime Helicopter Project
    • External Validation and Verification (External V&V)
    • Real-time simulation-based testing
      • Model-based engineering design
      • Aircraft-in-the-loop testing

how external v v can help win contract
How External V&V can help win contract
  • Help meet DND Canadian content objectives
    • Canadian content with high technical competency
    • Builds Canadian expertise for future projects (MHP, F18, and Aurora upgrades, Strategic Heavy Lifter project)
  • Reassure DND on system integrity
    • 100% arms-length external V&V auditor – no conflict of interest
    • Provide safety and technical assurance (as an external accounting audit provides financial confidence)
  • Lower bid price
    • Bidder can propose his own choice of auditing depth that would lower the V&V cost compared to full-fledged IV&V
    • Consortium’s advanced simulation technologies have a proven record of lowering cost and speeding development and certification
  • Improve client satisfaction
    • Enhanced safety assurance
    • Virtual prototyping optimizes design to meet DND requirements
    • Faster development and certification help meet delivery milestones
unique value added offer
Unique value-added offer

Value Added




Provide confidence to the DND on system integrity

Competent V&V Organization audits quality of work done by prime contractor and subcontractors



Reduce the high cost of conventional IV&V

HW and SW-in-the-loop model-based engineering testing using unique simulation technologies and services



Shorten delivery period for SW development, Speed up certification

Inspection and software in the loop model-based design (approach pioneered with Embraer, comparing the results of actual controller with the simulation results)

Microway, Opal-RT


Improve flight and landing safety

Aerodynamics, wind, icing analysis

Microway, NTI, Opal-RT


Increase satisfaction with final product

  • Participation in design reviews
  • System optimization based on high-fidelity dynamic simulation and virtual prototyping

Microway, Opal-RT


Build Canadian expertise for use in future projects

  • PRIME retains IP of External V&V, test methodologies and sim models
  • Consortium maintains and extends Canadian expertise

External V&V Consortium

conventional iv v organization
Conventional IV&V organization
  • Technically and managerially independent of both DND and the helicopter supplier
  • Carries out independent analysis and testing
    • Uses its own V&V facilities and tools
    • Covers any gaps in the helicopter supplier’s V&V and critical development processes
    • With this additional vigilance, the IV&V organization provides confidence to DND on the safety, integrity and performance of the software and of the system
  • Typically very expensive
    • For certain U.S. ballistic-missile procurements, the cost of IV&V has equaled or exceeded the total software development cost
    • Intellectual Property (IP) belongs to IV&V organization and must be re-licensed or rebuilt for future projects
value added external v v approach
Value-added External V&V approach
  • Still independent technically and managerially from the DND and the helicopter supplier’s V&V activities
  • Proposes a different approach to External V&V:
    • Audits supplier's V&V philosophy, organizational structure, plans, procedures, facilities and tools to assess adequacy
    • External V&V Discrepancy Reports identify improvements to supplier’s V&V, ensuring that necessary safety-test procedures are developed and executed and that issues are made visible to DND
    • Enhances supplier’s V&V with unique simulation methodologies, especially for avionics (upgraded often during the helicopter life cycle), feeds back simulation-test-bench to engineering cycle
    • Otherwise uses DND or university-owned facilities, i.e. McGill, UTIAS
  • Results as compared with conventional IV&V organization:
    • Improved safety
    • Reduced cost and faster delivery realized on first project
    • Increased savings on future projects
    • Optimized performance and to improve safety and user satisfaction
unique simulation methodologies
Unique simulation methodologies
  • Opal-RT: Real-time and non-real-time simulation models
    • Desktop Simulation: Engineering analysis, design
    • Engineering Simulator: Ground Based Simulator checks aircraft handling qualities, failure cases and hazard level
    • Iron Bird closed-loop simulation: Tests the real hardware against the simulation (including Acceptance tests for avionic system release)
    • Aircraft-in-the-loop simulation: Cut time and cost and increase safety
  • Newmerical Technologies International:
    • Aerodynamic performance and thermodynamic analysis
    • CFD-based Icing analysis and air wake effects for landing and take-off from ships
