Major Australian Defense Program Selects Systecon's Opus Evo to Deliver Tactical Optimization

21 Februar 2024

Systecon's Opus Evo, a powerful software for tactical optimization of dynamic scenarios, is now live and actively contributing to mission engineering and defense readiness in Australia.

Systecon, a global leader in analysis-driven Life Cycle Management, has recently secured a significant win in one of Australia's premier defense projects. The main objective of the contract is to establish tactical optimization capabilities to ensure mission-capable systems and maximize mission success rates. This will be enabled through Opus Evo, Systecon's cutting-edge software for tactical optimization of dynamic scenarios and part of Systecon´s Opus Suite analysis platform.

In the dynamic and unpredictable realm of tactical optimization and mission engineering for short to medium-deployment scenarios, Opus Evo addresses the very essence of mission-capable defense systems – minimizing the risk of mission failure. Tactical decision-making requires a nuanced and detailed analysis of scenario dynamics, calling for specialized analysis and optimization approaches that can accommodate the specific requirements of the intended operations, including the mission schedule, availability of support capabilities, and other time-dependent variables.  

At the core of Opus Evo's capabilities is the emphasis on tactical planning, making it possible to optimize towards a maximal likelihood of mission success, by determining the optimal allocation of maintenance resources, spare parts an even number of systems, required to minimize the very real risk that planned missions might fail. 

Maximizing Mission Success Rate with Heuristic Analysis Capabilities

Utilizing evolutionary algorithms and simulation, Opus Evo accommodates a detailed model of the systems, support, and operational characteristics, including dynamic aspects and variations over time. The tactical and operational optimization offered by Opus Evo extends to spares and maintenance equipment, making it an ideal approach for optimizing support kits for deployed operations but also strategically managing annual maintenance budgets. Its deployment in Australia provides heuristic analysis capabilities and marks a significant milestone, as it underscores Systecon's commitment to transforming defense strategies and reinforcing the defense capabilities and readiness of Australia in the region.

The deployment of Opus Evo in Australia marks a milestone. Today our customers use Opus Evo to provide tactical decision support to operators and stakeholders, allowing them to choose a logistic support solution that maximizes their mission success rate in theatre, given a minimal or even reduced logistic footprint. Opus EVO is a potent tool for saving time in analysis, and resources in operations, but most importantly, it will increase the chances for a successful mission
