RAAF’s New Tanker No Longer “Project of Concern”

 

March 11, 2015 defense-aerospace.com

(Source: Australian Defence Materiel Organisation; issued March 10, 2015)

 

Multi Role Tanker Transport Removed from “Projects of Concern” List

 

The Royal Australian Air Force’s KC-30A Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) aircraft has been removed from the Projects of Concern list after effectively being remediated by the Defence Materiel Organisation (DMO) and its industry partner.

 

Known as Project AIR 5402, the KC-30A MRTT had been on the Project of Concern list since February 2010 due to delays in delivery by Airbus Defence and Space.

 

DMO Acting Chief Executive Officer, Harry Dunstall, said that following an extensive development and testing program, the issues previously identified with the introduction of the Aerial Refuelling Boom System had been resolved and Defence had formally accepted the capability.

 

“Resolution of this issue completes the remediation of all activities identified in the project’s remediation plan, and accordingly it has been removed from the list,” Mr Dunstall said.

 

“Airbus Defence and Space has worked collaboratively with us to address our concerns and I would like to recognise and thank Airbus for their efforts.

 

“This is a great example of the effectiveness of the Projects of Concern process in remediating troubled projects.”

 

The project has delivered five new-generation Airbus Military KC-30A MRTT aircraft.

 

These aircraft are capable of in-flight refuelling of current and future ADF aircraft and will provide a significant air logistics services capability.

 

The KC-30A aircraft has been conducting hose and drogue in-flight refuelling in the RAAF since 2011 and is being used to great effect on current operations in the Middle East.

 

The recent acceptance of the boom capability paves the way to begin introduction of the boom in-flight refuelling capability into service progressively through 2015.

 

This capability will now undergo operational evaluation and all aircrew will be trained before Air Force can declare Full Operational Capability.

Australia Launches Review of Arms Buying Agency

Review into Land Systems Division – DMO


Minister for Defence Stephen Smith and Minister for Defence Materiel Mike Kelly today announced the key findings of a review into the Defence Materiel Organisation’s (DMO) Land System Division (LSD).

The review into Land System Division is the first of a series of reviews into the structure and functions of the Divisions within DMO which manage capability projects to establish the optimal structure for these Divisions to drive improved performance, accountability and reporting in relation to projects.

This program of reviews was announced by Minister Smith and then Minister for Defence Materiel Jason Clare in October 2012 and is part of the Government’s ongoing program of reform in Defence procurement.

The reviews were commissioned following the identification by the Government of a number of projects that have not been managed as effectively as they should have been.

The reviews commenced with a structural review into Land Systems Division, which has responsibility for a number of problem projects, including:

-- LAND 106, the upgrade of the M113 armoured vehicle fleet;
-- LAND 112, upgrade of the ASLAV armoured vehicle fleet;
-- Land 144 Phase 1 – Countermine Capability;
-- Land 134 Phase 1– Combat Training Centre – Live Instrumented System; and
-- Land 40 Phase 2 – (Direct Fire Support Weapon – Lightweight Automatic Grenade Launcher).

Ernst & Young undertook the review which assessed Land Systems Division across the areas of structure, resource, capability, roles, process, governance, infrastructure, culture, performance and talent management.

The Ernst & Young review made 41 recommendations with key findings being the need to enhance accountability within Land Systems Division by improving performance reporting, empowering decision making at the delegated levels and strengthening performance reviews.

The review also found a need to increase staff capability to provide accurate, complete, timely and well supported advice to Government by improving training programs.

Other findings include a requirement for all senior leadership group positions to be contestable to ensure the most suitable candidate is appointed to leadership roles whether that candidate is an ADF member or a civilian.

The review acknowledged that Land Systems Division has been proactive in instigating a range of improvement initiatives, particularly since the appointment of a new Division Head in January 2013.

The review also noted the positive and often unrecognised role Land Systems Division has played over the past decade in providing support to Australia’s operations overseas and the preparation of forces to deploy.

Defence agrees with the recommendations of the report. An implementation plan to address and action the 41 recommendations is currently being developed.

Ernst & Young will soon be engaged to undertake a review of the Explosive Ordnance Division with a report to be prepared over the next few months.

The executive summary and recommendations of the Ernst & Young review into Land Systems Division will be available at http://www.defence.gov.au/dmo/Newsitems/14June13_LSD_Review.cfm
