Designing and managing increasingly complex systems, systems of systems and systems of capabilities/services over their life cycles…from concept development through deployment, operations and system retirement

Sabre provides systems engineering and integration to Major Defense Acquisition Programs for Department of Defense (DoD) activities including engineering and logistics development, test and evaluation, system deployment, and life cycle support. We work side by side and on Integrated Program teams (IPTs) with our government clients to successfully plan, manage, and execute their programs. As a CMMI and ISO certified company we bring a working knowledge of current best practices, as well as a rich history in lessons learned focused on ensuring that all cost, schedule, and technical objectives are met.



Engineering Designs for EAF, ALRE

Sabre produced System Design Documentation and performed Technical Data Support at the component, subsystem and system level for Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) Aircraft Launch and Recovery Equipment (ALRE) and Expeditionary Airfields (EAF) designs. Design activities ranged from material changes, to new designs, to development of quick reaction designs.Sabre employed AutoCAD for 3-D and 2-D design; PRO/ENGINEER solid models for 3-D system workups; and PRO/MECHANICA finite element solver. Our work included the design of new EAF/ ALRE components critical to safe flight operations.

Sabre assisted the U.S. Navy in the integration of ALRE ship installations. Sabre performed product design management in accordance with the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) and Lead Ship yard’s requirements. Our work involved developing coordinated plans for ongoing/evolving NAVSEA ship alterations and associated schedules with NAVAIR ALRE designs and properly timing data exchanges and maintaining configuration management to ensure successful shipboard installation and integration.

EMALS and AAG Ship Installation Critical Design Review

Sabre was instrumental in supporting both the Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS) and Advanced Arresting Gear (AAG) program during system development and demonstration. Specific accomplishments included conducting critical drawing reviews, facilitating the development of the "GreenBook" to support shipyard installation and checkout, and conducting Physical Configuration Audits (PCAs). Our work was essential to meeting NAVSEA CVN 78 ship installation milestones on time and on budget.

SETR Checklist Management Tool

Sabre engineers developed and continue to maintain the Systems Engineering Technical Review (SETR) Checklist Management Tool, the centerpiece element of the NAVAIR Systems Engineering Development and Implementation Center (SEDIC) tools used across NAVAIR (and the Navy) to document and manage, collaboratively and in real time, entry and exit criteria for Major Defense Acquisition Program design reviews. This tool includes not only the technical aspects of design but also the logistics and supportability aspects over a system’s lifecycle.

Major Acquisition Program Logistics Planning and Support

Sabre advised NAVAIR Assistant Program Managers for Logistics (APML) for major acquisition programs such as the CH-53K, AARGM, and E-6 TACAMO in planning and execution of key logistic related functions such as development Life Cycle Sustainment Plans, detailed Integrated Management Schedule development and assessment, Earned Value, Logistics Requirements Funding Summaries, Maintenance Planning, and Supply Support planning. For over 25 years, Sabre has proudly supported logistics planning and execution for major acquisition programs across all program phases and for programs as venerable as the P-3 and for programs as new as the P-8A.

LORA Training Development

NAVAIR sought out Sabre’s Level of Repair Analysis (LORA) expertise to develop new LORA Continuous Learning Modules for AIR 6.7 personnel and to teach those courses to NAVAIR instructors. NAVAIR continues to present the course to their logistics professionals and the modules Sabre developed have since been selected for inclusion on the DAU’s training web site to instruct the DoD logistics community.
