Overview

Phase 1

Phase 1 will replace and enhance the ADF’s aviation ground refuelling vehicle fleet for use within the National Support Base.

  • IMR will occur upon the completion and release of the supplies which are required to support the achievement of the IOC.
  • IOC will be defined later in the project development process.
  • LOT for this capability is expected to be 20 years.
  • FOC will occur when the full scope of the project, including the mission, support and training systems, and facilities, if required, has been delivered and accepted into operational service.

The Australian Government announced on 27 March 2015 that it had granted 1st pass approval for JP 157 Phase 1.  The next step in the project is the release of a request for tender, although no timings have been announced yet.  At this time, the governement is expecting to make a final decision on the project in 2016.
