Airbus announces PREDICT Australia as a partner for Team Nightjar
PREDICT Australia has been selected as partner to form Team Nightjar alongside Airbus, a consortium of 20 Australian partners, bringing together Australia’s best industry capabilities and academia. Under the Defence project Land 2097 Phase4, the Commonwealth of Australia is seeking a fleet of helicopters to support the Australian Defence Force’s Special Operations. In response to the Commonwealth of Australia’s request for proposal, a four-tonne class, rapidly deployable, multi-role helicopter for the Australian Special Forces, Team Nightjar will be offering a fleet of the highly capable Airbus H145M and in-country support.
PREDICT Australia will bring a major innovation on the Health Monitoring of helicopters whose main objective is to contribute to increase helicopter availability through better engine usage tracking and to optimise its use during flight. PREDICT Australia is established in Adelaide, SA since 2018 and is based in the new Innovation Hub Lot Fourteen which fosters the Defence Landing Pad, Australian Space Agency, MIT Living Lab, Australian Cyber Collaboration Centre, and Australian Machine Learning Institute. PREDICT Australia believes in Australian-led innovation and has a strong commitment to contribute to build a sovereign capability, train tomorrow’s Australian workforce and create jobs for Australia in a niche capability for the Commonwealth of Australia.
