Thales Australia has opened new offices in Melbourne to support its work on Australia’s OneSky project.

The offices, which have undergone a $12 million redevelopment, will be home to the OneSky project team developing the common Civil/Military Air Traffic Management System for the Department of Defence and Airservices Australia.

The facility will be used to develop the advanced and integrated air traffic control system. The system will manage forecasted growth of air traffic movement in Australia, by as much as 60% by 2030.

Christopher Pyne, Australia’s Minister for Defence, said: ‘The OneSky project will transform Australia’s air traffic management system and national infrastructure in the sky, ensuring the travelling public arrive at their destination safely and with minimal delays.

‘This project will replace the ageing military air traffic management systems and is essential to ensuring our defence forces can continue to operate seamlessly in Australia’s airspace.’
