Project SEA 1778 Mine Counter-Measures

Sayres Australia was contracted by Thales Australia to provide training development services in support of the delivery of Project SEA1778.  This project was delivering advanced Mine Counter Measures capabilities to the RAN, including the operation of Unmanned Surface Vessels (USVs).  As part of this project, Sayres Australia updated and delivered the final Training Needs Analysis Report (TNAR) and Equipment Application Course (EAC) Training Management Plan (TNGMP) for the USV capability to be delivered to Navy. This work package incorporated the design and development of training courses for both Operators and Maintainers of the USV.  We successfully delivered the TNAR and TNGMP within tight project timeframes and achieved Commonwealth acceptance of the training packages.
