Navantia Receives Inaugural CASG Engineering Team Commendation

Innovative Design Solution for LHD System Programme Office

Navantia’s Australian engineering team, led by General Design Lead, Matthew Harman, was recently presented with the Godl Engineering Team of the Year commendation award – the first of its kind – by Luke Brown, Chief Engineer of Australia’s Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG).

The engineering team has worked in close collaboration with the LHD (Landing Helicopter Dock)  System Programme Office (SPO), Commonwealth regulators and industry partners to provide the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) with an increased operating capability for the LHD Landing Craft (LLC), able to meet the demands occasioned by the use of new, heavier army vehicles.

The Melbourne-based team was singled out as an integral contributor to the team within the LLC Capability Enhancement Program (CEP) for their innovation and collaborative support in the development of the design solution, which has gracefully avoided the necessity for an early replacement of the LLC and increased the operational performance profile.

This collaboration was highlighted for promoting the key CASG enterprise philosophy for collaboration between the Royal Australian Navy and industry.  The success of the project has created renewed enthusiasm for the LHD Landing Craft within the Australian Defence Force.
