Project background

SAGE Automation’s manufacturing facility in Tonsley recently completed a major project for Saab Australia, assembling more than 50 training consoles that will be used by the Royal Australian Navy.  

To deliver the finished consoles, SAGE manufactured the internal cable assemblies and completed the installation of all devices and cabling into the console body.

Throughout the project, the SAGE manufacturing team worked with Saab Australia technicians, accommodating changes during the assembly phase while ensuring the completion date could be met.

The project was delivered under a tight timeframe, thanks to SAGE’s ability to draw on its in-house, scalable manufacturing workforce to complete the project ahead of schedule.

Ty Borlace – Project Manager, SAGE defence

Saab partnered with SAGE for the assembly and construction of the facsimile weapons training consoles for the Australian Navy.

The project consisted of building over 50 weapons training consoles that will be used to train our defence forces in various tactical and combat situations.

Joe Romeo – Project Manager, Saab Australia

So this project here basically involved the design, implementation and installation of the latest emulation training system developed by Saab for the ANZAC class mark 3E combat management system.

The project really needed a local South Australian organisation who was able to collaborate closely with Saab technicians and also had the ability to deliver the large quantity of consoles under a tight timeframe.

Ty 

The project consisted of over 1600 man-hours and was delivered entirely from South Australia, using local labour and our in-house procurement and supply chain.

Joe 

Working with SAGE was a seamless collaboration. We really experienced fantastic communication throughout the delivery of the project and we found that SAGE was willing and able to accommodate the changes required by the project during the assembly phase. So SAGE did a great job and were able to deliver these consoles ahead of schedule and all consoles met their quality assurance checks.

Ty 

We’ve really enjoyed working with Saab on this project, it’s great to know that the work we’re doing will greatly benefit the Australian Defence Force and help to keep Australia safe.

Outcome

Following SAGE’s own stringent quality and testing process, technicians were able to ensure all consoles were manufactured to specification and safely delivered to the client.
