RASDA Has Evolved Over Time, and the Good Working Relationship With Fujitsu Has Been Beneficial to Its Continuing Role in Operations
RASDA, the Replicated Air Support Decision Aid, was developed and is now an important part of the RAF's SECRET level operational systems at bases at home and abroad. The Royal Air Force needed to be able to monitor and exercise Command and Control over its operational aircraft worldwide. The RAF's task is a complex one with operations overseas as well as day-to-day training for operations in the UK. Then they deployed Fujitsu. Fujitsu designed and built the solution, and continues to provide support; working closely with the customer to implement any changes required. Fujitsu used rapid prototyping techniques to develop Oracle forms in conjunction with users in workshops. This enables RASDA to be implemented in phases rolling out updates at user request.
