Engineers at ARDEC
work with researchers at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) on several of these projects.
In March of 2007, when the Army's project managers for Crew-Served Weapons and Cargo Helicopters agreed to a proposal by ARDEC
to design the new mount, Javorsky had already been mulling over ideas.
Using tools such as Capability Maturity Model Integrated Level 5 software development processes for software quality enhancement, user verification and validation, and stress testing, the MFCS-D and other current software-intensive system developments undertaken at ARDEC
are providing soldiers critically needed, well-engineered, and well-tested products developed in a short amount of time.
is the Army's principal researcher, developer, and sustainer of current and future military armaments systems.
Experiment with prototype systems under realistic conditions (at the ARDEC
lab), emulating operational situations and simulating weapon systems, thus demonstrating that useful effects can be achieved.
Through this contract, they will provide LRED, ARDEC
with proven successful support services for logistics engineering and product support analysis of munitions and weapons systems as they are developed.
One of the engineers is Vinny Leto, systems project engineer, of the Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center, or ARDEC
