Deployable Power Generating Systems Test Successful

26 June 2013


From 3 to 6 June, a team from NSPA LG Programme conducted a First Article Factory Test (FAFT) of various power generating equipment at manufacturing facilities in northern Italy.

This equipment was procured within the framework of NATO Capability Packages (CP) 5A0156 and 9A0109 that provide assets in support of NATO’s operations and air C2 capability.

The power generating equipment will provide electrical power and lighting for two 500-man deployable HQs and for the NATO’s Deployable Air Control Centre (ACC) / Recognized Air Picture Production Centre (RPC) / Sensor Fusion Post (SFP) (DARS) unit. 

The FAFT was a major milestone of the project implementation process. The inspection and testing activities were completed successfully allowing the continuation of the manufacturing process.
