LES Completes Delivery of MH-60R WSDB

LES has completed delivery of the MH-60R Weapon System Database (WSDB) to Sikorsky Helitech and has subsequently been accepted by the AIR9000 Ph 8 Project Office. The WSDB development was completed on time and budget due to the excellent collaboration between the Project Office, Sikorsky Helitech, Naval Air Systems Program Office (NASPO) and the efforts of the highly skilled LES personnel assigned to the project. The successful completion ensures that the aircraft Technical Maintenance Plan (TMP) and Planned Servicing Schedule (PSS) are ready for the aircrafts introduction into service.

The only remaining task for LES is to support Sikorsky Helitech with the aircraft Asset Data Load to CAMM2. This will occur in Jacksonville, Florida over the December 13 - February 14 period with possible further support as aircraft are delivered.

Air8000 Ph2 Battlefield Airlift Independent Maintenance Inspections

LES has completed the development of the C-27J Air Vehicle Independent Maintenance Inspections (IMI). After considerable effort by both the AIR8000 Phase 2 Project Office and LES an efficient and robust methodology was developed and utilised to analyse the relevant data and create IMI that meet the requirements of AAP 7001.053, Technical Airworthiness Management Manual. LES believe the methodology will now be used for future projects and to review and update existing platform IMI.

LES Secures Logistic Support Analysis (LSA) Projects for the Australian C-27J BFA Aircraft

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.
