PLAN GALILEO INFRASTRUCTURE REBUILD

 

Plan Galileo delivers the capability to sustain the Royal Australian Navy's growing fleet to ensure it can fight and win at sea.

 

The Royal Australian Navy is about to undertake a step-change in its capability and complexity thanks to the federal government's National Naval Shipbuilding Enterprise, which will fundamentally alter the way we go about naval acquisition. It will provide the nation with its greatest naval capability regeneration since the Second World War, as well as create and sustain a sovereign shipbuilding industry in Australia for generations to come.

 

This regeneration of Australia's key naval capabilities is a complex, long-term national endeavour with sustainment shipyards around the country requiring investment to support our expanded fleet. Further planning and redevelopment will be needed and now is the ideal time to transform maritime sustainment.

 

Plan Galileo sees sustainment as a whole-of-life concept, considering sustainment needs at the design stage of a vessel. It considers Capability Life Cycle Management from the outset as an underlying principle of continuous sustainment, underpinned by the need to support a seamless transition from acquisition to sustainment. It reworks our support solution to one that adopts a fleet view, which drives commonality across sustainment and minimises duplication across the maritime domain.

 

To hear from Head Maritime Systems, RADM Wendy Malcolm, on the objectives of Plan Galileo click here.

 

Plan Galileo focusses sustainment on Regional Maintenance Centres (RMCs), which are strategically located sustainment centres bringing together the Fleet Support Unit, primes and local small businesses and suppliers. The RMCs will have the capability to sustain multiple classes of RAN surface fleet units using in-place infrastructure and personnel, maximising the efficiency and effectiveness of Australia's naval sustainment workforce. Further information on the RMCs can be found here.

 

Plan Galileo aims to achieve three key objectives by 2025:

 

  • Build a new approach to integrated Capability Life Cycle management.
  • Leverage new technologies and learning to improve productivity and promote increased levels of innovation, collaboration and knowledge-sharing in the maritime domain.
  • Generate the skilled workforce we need to meet this challenge.
