Aerial Opposing Force and Target Support Invitation to Register for Industry Engagement
Show close time for other time zones
The ADF is investigating commercial aviation services to emulate live aerial Opposing Forces (OPFOR) and provide expendable aerial targets to support ADF training. Commercial aircraft may also tow targets and carry target emulators and includes support to live fire practices.
The activity will release an open Invitation to Register (ITR), inviting industry to participate in professionally facilitated discussions and workshops on live Aerial Opposing Force and Target Support (AOFTS), inclusive of airborne Electronic Warfare Training System (EWTS), to the ADF. The industry engagement activity, also known as an Industry Scrum, will be jointly managed by the Plan Jericho Implementation Team, and the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) to improve effectiveness and timeliness of Defence procurement. UTS will facilitate the Industry Scrum.
In alignment with the UTS Design Innovation and Research Centre (DIRC) information pack, the Industry Scrum is designed to bring together multiple stakeholders – the voices of expertise, experience and accountability – for an intense time period to re-frame problems of today to convert them into opportunities for tomorrow. Better understanding of the experiences of stakeholders in a problem can help to shape solutions that mitigate stakeholder pain-points as well as provide a solution that is robust, feasible and desirable. It also ensures that solutions are built in consideration of all stakeholders’ needs and requirements; and not just the organisational perspective. The re-framing of today’s problems is achieved through stages of divergence – applying creative and lateral thinking; and prototyping and testing to converge on possible options and opportunities through a combination of briefings, presentations and design activities.
