BMT Design & Technology (BMT), a subsidiary of BMT Group Ltd, has delivered the first Whole Life Warship Capability Management course in Canberra, Australia, to a full enrolment of defence, government and industry participants. The four day course presented delegates with the knowledge to plan for and manage the capability definition, acquisition and sustainment phases of warship ownership. The course is the only one of its kind in Australia and has been developed to assist with the challenge of sustaining the existing RAN fleet, whilst preparing for major acquisition programs including offshore patrol vessels, frigates, replenishment ships and submarines.

The course is scheduled to run again on the 16th of November 2015, and is currently accepting enrolments.

The course provides detailed insight into the processes and management of warship projects as well as the key engineering activities and disciplines that are integral to ship design, with modules including:
• Capability Development;
• Requirements Management;
• Design Process and Safety;
• Technical Evaluation;
• Design Control and Validation;
• Cost Engineering;
• Standards, Certification & Regulation;
• Hydrostatics and Hydrodynamics;
• Power and Propulsion;
• Hull and Mechanical Systems;
• Electrical and Control Systems; and
• Through Life Support.

A number of international experts were invited to present to the course delegates including Professor Jonathan Gates, who has held a number of senior positions on major UK naval projects, and recently published a book for the Royal Navy on the Type 45 destroyer. He presented topics discussing Battlespaces and Total Ship Survivability which demonstrated the impact sensors, effectors and command and control elements have on the acquisition process and whole of life support.

Gordon MacDonald, Managing Director of BMT Design & Technology, also presented at the course and says: “The BMT Whole Life Warship Capability Management Course shares our expertise in warship design and program management with the naval community, and gave the delegates numerous opportunities for interactive discussion and debate. We are thrilled by the positive reception and active participation we received from those who attended.”
