Logistic Engineering Services Pty Ltd (LES) has been successful in its bid to develop solutions for two tasks in support of Project AIR8000 Phase 2 Battlefield Airlift - Caribou Replacement.
- The development of the C-27J Air Vehicle Logistics Support Analysis Record (LSAR) and Related Instructions for Continuing Airworthiness (ICA). The AIR8000 Phase 2 Project Office awarded the Purchase Order under the provisions of the Defence Materiel Organisation Support Services (DMOSS) Panel to LES on 14 January 2013.
- The development of the C-27J Air Vehicle Independent Maintenance Inspections (IMI). The AIR8000 Phase 2 Project Office awarded the Purchase Order under the provisions of the Defence Materiel Organisation Support Services (DMOSS) Panel to LES on 04 March 2013.
The LES LSAR and Related ICA project comprises the production and delivery of the:
- C-27J Air Vehicle WSDB, TMP and PSS;
- Australian Defence Aircraft Authorised Spares System (ADAASS) data sets for the C-27J Air Vehicle;
- WSBD for the C-27J Support and Test Equipment (S&TE); and
- Provision of consultancy services to assist CAMM2 seeding and the transition of the WSDB and ADAASS into service.
LES will once again utilise its proprietary software application eMRD to complete the development of the WSDB. eMRD is a robust and proven application that enables the analyst to make consistent determinations by providing greater visibility of build structure and servicing integration.
The AIR8000 Phase 2 Project Office joins the growing number of Defence Agencies such as AMPRT, TASPO, TFSPO and Defence Industry clients to rollout eMRD, as their tool of choice to conduct WSDB activities in support of their Maintenance Requirements Determination (MRD) and LSAR data management functions.
The LES C-27J Development of IMI project comprises the production and delivery of the:
- IMI Development Methodology; and
- Development of IMI for both Preventive and Corrective Maintenance Tasks for the C-27J Air Vehicle.
Both the LES LSAR and Related ICA and LES C-27J Development of IMI projects are essential in contributing to the type certification and sustainment of the Australian C-27J BFA Aircraft. The project is being managed and resourced entirely from within LES to meet the delivery schedule for the capability, which will enter into service in early 2015.
