Lockheed Martin Australia is seeking industry partners with capabilities in ICT systems and simulation services to deliver and provide critical training support for a significant upgrade and expansion of Defence’s simulation capability, Joint Project 9711 Phase 1.
The company is looking for potential suppliers with the ability to develop, integrate, build, supply and maintain simulation-related capabilities and elements within Australia. Opportunities for Australian industry will centre on ICT Systems and Services, and Simulation Services.
Lockheed Martin Australia (LMA) will deliver the JP9711 Ph.1 Core Simulation Capability (CSimC) program supported by NEC Australia and Calytrix with reach back to Lockheed Martin Corporation in the US. JP9711 Ph.1 will provide the services required to deliver a Core Simulation Capability that will provide critical training support to the future force through a significant upgrade and expansion of its simulation capability. The capability will enable Defence to link live and simulated training together for large scale Joint and Combined collective training and to deliver on-demand distributed mission training to the single services of the ADF and Joint Operations Command.
Lockheed Martin Australia and our Australian teammates will execute the following in delivering JP9711-1:
- Developing the ICT infrastructure that will be integrated with Defence’s enterprise services to deliver simulation-enabled training
- Ongoing management, maintenance and enhancement of the ICT infrastructure
- Integration of existing GFE with new toolsets to enhance simulation-enabled training
- Participating or leading the development of the Releasable Federation (RFed) to ensure that non-US countries participate in simulation-enabled coalition training activities
- Development of the Simulation-Enabled Collective Training – Information Management System (SeCT-IMS)
- Conducting V&V of the CSimC to ensure the system achieves Defence standards
- Conducting test and evaluation of all elements being delivered as part of the CSimC Functional Performance Specification using appropriate Quality Assurance (QA) methodologies
- Supporting development, execution and post activity reporting of simulation-enabled training events
- Development of innovative concepts to enhance training outcomes to promote efficiency and reuse to lower
Expressions of interest close 31 December 2024.
