Hawker Pacific launched its ICN Gateway for the Australian Defence Force’s (ADF) forthcoming Special Operations Helicopter acquisition project under LAND 2097 Phase 4. This gateway will be used as the primary vehicle for potential suppliers to register expressions of interest (EOI), respond to specific work packages as they are released and support prequalification activities.
Under LAND 2097 Phase 4 the helicopters are to be proven Commercial or Military off the shelf, optimised for operating in dense urban environments, and capable of being rapidly deployed by air transport in ADF Boeing C-17A Globemaster III aircraft.
These helicopters will primarily support air assault of small Special Forces teams and should be capable of being rapidly re-configured by fitment of proven, ISR equipment and weapons systems.
Craig Purry, Vice President Government Business Asia Pacific, says, “The launch of this gateway will continue to support Hawker Pacific’s commitment to growing Australia’s sovereign Defence Industry capability base”.
Purry added, “Hawker Pacific are committed to identifying and engaging with small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) and Indigenous businesses, which have capabilities to support upcoming work packages and demonstrate a real value proposition to the project”.
Expressions of Interest (EOI) are open until August, 5, 2019. More information about Hawker Pacific’s Special Operations Helicopter program is available online at hawkerpacific.com/SOH
