NEANY has significant experience with testing, deploying, and sustaining unmanned systems in Iraq, and Afghanistan. NEANY's success is evidenced by the reliability, maintainability, and operational availability of its currently deployed systems. This has been achieved through a constant commitment to effective information exchange mechanisms while incorporating management controls, such as Configuration Management (CM) repositories and Test First Approach (TFA) methods that ensure the constant evaluation of systems throughout the contract life-cycle.
NEANY has provided planning and support for the PGSS/PGST in Afghanistan. For the PGSS/PGST mission, NEANY provided equipment, disassembly, long-term storage, inventory reduction, logistic support, resource management, and personnel movement. This level of mission intimacy provides the embedded structure to implement a successful T&E reporting information exchange across the stakeholder spectrum.
