Air 5428 Pilot Training System
The ADF AIR 5428 Pilot Training System is designed to deliver the next generation of skilled pilots for the ADF for the next 25 years. AML successfully competed for and won critical roles to deliver this exciting program. In the lead up, AML provided services to the program to establish solid Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), strategies for governance framework and, most importantly, combine and streamline three special project offices (SPOs) into one SPO currently operating as the ATACSPO, headquartered at RAAF Base East Sale, VIC. AML has placed over 15 highly specialised consultants into the Air 5428 program from the onset. Since the program’s inception, AML has been an integral team member in establishing Training Developers for all aspects of the integrated training solution. Our team worked closely with the other members to develop a seamless e-learning environment utilising flight training demonstrators (simulators), on-line training accessible anywhere in the world and traditional classroom training, all in accordance with the Defence Training Manual. Additionally, our team also provided transition services from the acquisition phase of the program into the sustainability phase of the program. This ensured that no lapse of pilot training occurred. AML consultants to this day provide day to day services to the Air 5428 program.
AML consultants have participated in the role of Capture Manager for JP-9711 a $350million dollar opportunity. In this capacity they teamed with a major international Defence partner to manage the opportunity from all aspects of proposal development. We worked with teaming members to develop a practical solution and implementation plan which led to a proposal being submitted from team members located in five different countries. Additionally, we provided detailed financial analysis of the proposed solution and developed briefs at the executive level for industry and government.
Land 1508 Special Operations
AML provided above the line services to the Defence Prime, requiring project management advice for the development and implementation of documents that would form the foundation for briefings to Cabinet and other important stakeholders. AML conducted a complete audit of previous documents and provided necessary re-writes to ensure compliance with Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG) requirements. Specifically, a re-write of the Project Execution Strategy for Tranche 2, a major document and the Communication and Stakeholders Management Plan.
Land 2110 Ph1B
AML was contracted as the Strategic Logistics Adviser to the LAND 2110 Ph1B Project, the revitalisation of the ADF Chemical Biological radiological Nuclear Defence (CBRND) capability. This included responsibilities for development of the Integrated Logistic Support Plan(ILSP). Support services provided by AML were focused to provide the most effective support methodology to deliver the revitalised capability. In the development of the support system, the First Principles Review (FPR), SmartBuyer direction and key areas of the Defence Industry Policy 2016 were influential in shaping the methodology for both acquisition and support. AML support was predominantly to the Project Management (PM) and Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) Section of the PO, however, has also included support to the Engineering Section. These services spanned the development of tender documentation through to tender evaluation and contract implementation planning.
AML consultants provided a comprehensive Training Needs Analysis (TNA) for the new Canberra Class, Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD) HMAS Canberra. In this capacity we were required to complete a full TNA on the Ships Joint Operations Centre and develop a period of blended E-learning for the Royal Australian Navy. Additionally, using a CryteK operating engine we developed the Shipboard walk-through model a detailed virtual representation of the LHD. This provided the backbone to develop and design sixty-three courses in five different models with an in-depth Learning Management System (LMS) to assess and record the training conducted.
