RAAF signs MMS agreement

12th June 2017 - 08:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) will benefit from a new operations management resource under an agreement with Boeing companies Jeppesen and Tapestry Solutions.

The companies will integrate the Mission Management Suite under the agreement. This military operations centre suite of applications efficiently manages air mission activity throughout the full mission lifecycle, giving RAAF commanders increased, real-time visibility of their operations and providing improved transparency. This includes RAAF air mission planning, operations management and resource scheduling in the complex Air Operations Centre environment.

The web-based solution provides military operators with a single user interface that integrates multiple functions in a unified platform. The solution will help the RAAF optimise their Air Mobility Group air-lift operations, which is managed by the Air Mobility Control Centre (AMCC) in Sydney. The Military aircraft that the AMCC task and control include KC-30 Multi Role Tanker Transport, C-130J Hercules, C-27J Spartans, C-17, B300 King Air, BBJ 737 and CL-604 Challenger.    

Matt Buettner, director, Jeppesen Flight Planning and Dispatch, said: ‘The RAAF will significantly improve AMCC operations, specifically related to request and mission planning, diplomatic clearance management, automated/on-demand report generation, expense tracking and management, hazardous cargo management, security and integration with their existing systems.

‘We will continue to work with RAAF to further enhance Mission Management Suite to meet their exact operational needs.’
