ecagroupMinister for Defence Industry Pat Conroy convened a Projects of Concern Summit recently on the Civil Military Air Traffic Management System (OneSKY-CMATS) project. This is the third Summit held by the current government since coming to office.

It is a part of the government’s commitment to strengthen and revitalise Defence’s Projects of Concern process, bringing senior industry stakeholders, Defence officials and the Minister together to remediate listed projects.

Since the last summit in March, a contract master schedule has been agreed and a recent demonstration has shown some progress towards better integrated systems. The September Summit agreed on milestones to be achieved before the end of the year, including the integrated master schedule that is vital to understanding the schedule and cost of a revised delivery pathway.

Conroy thanked Thales Australia and Airservices Australia for their ongoing commitment to resolve and remediate complex issues in a timely manner. I’d like to thank the company, Defence officials and other senior representatives for coming together again to discuss what needs to happen next to deliver this project. I’m looking forward to another Summit before the end of the year. Despite the challenges faced by the Civil Military Air Traffic Management System project, the Government remains committed to delivering a safe air traffic management capability. Through holding regular Project of Concern Summits the government is restoring momentum to the remediation process and ensuring Defence, Thales and Airservices Australia deliver on the agreed remediation plan.”
