BAE Systems, ADF define AMACCS extension

16th April 2012 - 15:34 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


BAE Systems has announced that it has been issued with a five year extension to its Australian Military Airspace Control Communications System (AMACCS) support contract. The contract, valued at A$11.5 million, was renegotiated to deliver a more cost-effective solution consistent with the Strategic Reform Program (SRP).

According to BAE Systems the Commonwealth will see savings of over 10% over the contract period under the new terms, in line with SRP goals. These savings were achieved by analysing the project practices and streamlining processes using LEAN principles, and leveraging 10 years of experience gained on AMACCS.

AMACCS provides in service support to the RAAF’s ground to air radio assets and is installed in the following segments - air traffic control, air weapons ranges, pilot monitoring facilities, air defence ground environment and some remote Airservices Australia sites.

The contract extension also included additional scope valued at A$1.6 million which included training and engineering services for through life support at no additional cost.
