This Week’s Highlight: Opportunities with Geoscience Australia

Geoscience Australia is an agency of the Australian government responsible for advising on all geological and geographical matters that may be of interest or benefit to Australia. For the most part it is a research organisation with priorities including: maximising the benefits from Australia’s minerals and energy resources, improving resilience to natural hazards and optimising and sustaining our water resources. This week we look at two Approaches to Market issued by Geoscience Australia related to satellite navigational capability.

Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS)

This is a notice for a second Industry Brief and a Request for Information (RFI). SBAS is a safety critical system used by aviation primarily for approach and landing operations, but also a range of other transport, agricultural, construction, and surveying industries and is intended to augment Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) to improve the Position, Navigation, and Timing performance for users with suitable receiver equipment. The Industry Brief is to be held on 17 September 2019 in Canberra and is intended to inform potential suppliers of Geoscience Australia’s (GA) continuing market analysis activities in preparation for a possible approach to market. Interested companies can also attend the briefing via teleconference. The RFI will be used by GA to further its understanding of the extent to which the market is capable of meeting the needs of the Project. GA will be looking to potential suppliers with a proven track record of establishing and sustaining capabilities of similar complexity and magnitude. While a response to the RFI does not directly relate to success in any future procurements, it does provide the opportunity to potentially influence the final solution and alert the agency of your company’s potential capability. Also worthy of note is the opportunity to present proposed solutions to GA following the industry brief should you chose to do so. The closing date for the RFI is 22 Oct 19.

Provision of GNSS Surveying Services

This procurement is for services to perform the third Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) survey of existing ground-marks in the Surat Basin, south-eastern Queensland. The task involves the temporary storage of 75 GNSS equipment packs to be deployed at identified locations to complete a 7 day observation campaign. The draft contract is of a fairly straight forward nature with simple returnable tender schedules. This RFT closes 23-Sep-2019 and the Contract is expected to run for 2 months commencing the 4 Oct 19.
