This Week’s Highlight: Future Aviation Taskforce

Opportunites for specialist consultants are frequently called for by government departments. This week we look at an opportunity issued by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) who is seeking to establish a Future Strategies Taskforce. This Taskforce will assist CASA in identifying key developments that are expected to have significant impacts on Australia’s civil aviation operations over the coming 3-10 years. THis information will inform CASA’s strategic regulatory planning to position CASA to provide timely regulatory support to Australian industry and the community.

Nine competency areas have been identified by CASA as listed below. It is important to note that CASA is seeking organsiations with capability across multiple categories (not necesarily all):

  • Strategic aviation policy development
  • Commercialisation and operationalisation of new and disruptive aviation technologies, and the associated understanding of consequential regulatory implications
  • Airspace management and development of future supporting technical infrastructure, such as the digitisation, automation and migration to satellited-supported communications, navigation, surveillance and ATM systems (including digital towers and SBAS implementation)
  • Design and certification of advanced air mobility (AAM), electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) and remote piloted aircraft systems (RPAS), hybrid and electric propulsion systems, battery storage technologies, super- and hyper-sonic aircraft, novel airframes, and related emerging technologies and the supporting operational infrastructure
  • Uncrewed traffic management (UTM), low-level airspace management and air traffic management (ATM) to UTM integration
  • High reliability command and control (C2) communications infrastructure
  • Advanced simulation and modelling technologies including advanced finite element modelling (FEM) and computational fluid dynamic (CFD) tools and the use of “digital twins” in predictive continuing airworthiness and maintenance activity
  • Novel propulsion elements including innovative fuel chemistries such as biofuels and lead-replacement fuels

    Interested tenderers are to take note of the varied submission process. Since the principal aspects of this program are expected to be delivered by May 2022, CASA seeks to place contracts in a fairly short period of time. As such submisisons are to be emailed to tenders@casa.gov.au as soon as they are completed. CASA is encouraging early submissions, as evaluations will commence as soon as submissions are received and contracts may be awarded to applicants as soon as they are successful in this registration process. CASA’s present tranche of work is expected to be completed by 30 June 2022 and activity in this field is likely to be ongoing beyond 30 June 2022. Final submissions will close on the 30 Apr 22.
