The original </li></ul><ul><li>fully integrated combat system installed by Raytheon was upgraded in 2004 with the Raytheon AN/BYG1 Combat Control </li></ul><ul><li>System utilised in the US Navy Virginia Class Submarines. The Raytheon combat system consists of an integrated </li></ul><ul><li>Command and Control system, Sonar, Navigation, Weapons launch and control, Electronic Surveillance Measures, Radar, </li></ul><ul><li>Communications and Search & Attack Periscopes systems. Raytheon were responsible for the development, installation, </li></ul><ul><li>integration, testing and maintenance of these systems throughout the build phase and now mange the operational Through </li></ul><ul><li>Life Support of these systems. </li></ul>

In February 1999, I was appointed to the In Service Support team </li></ul><ul><li>and was responsible for all Collins class periscope maintenance as Raytheon’s Periscope specialist. </li></ul><ul><li>My role required me to liaise regularly with BAE Systems and Australian Submarine Corporation and coordinate technical </li></ul><ul><li>and Mechanical personnel involved in the installation and removal of Search and Attack Periscope systems. I provided </li></ul><ul><li>technical advice and training to the RAN and Raytheon technical staff and carried out fault diagnosis, rectification and </li></ul><ul><li>modifications to the Periscope, TDHS, Navigation & ESM systems on the Collins Class Submarines. I was involved in </li></ul><ul><li>numerous Submarine Sea Trials and frequently travelled interstate & overseas to provide technical support, carry out </li></ul><ul><li>Formal Acceptance and Integration testing and maintain the submarine combat system whilst at sea or at various sites </li></ul><ul><li>within Australia. </li></ul><ul><li>As Build Program Technical Lead I regularly attended and chaired meetings/teleconferences with the ASC, Royal Australian </li></ul><ul><li>Navy and various other sub-contractors to discuss build and maintenance scheduling, defect rectification and planning of </li></ul><ul><li>modifications and trials. I was a primary point of contact for all technical issues relating to the Installation, Integration and </li></ul><ul><li>testing of the Collins combat system on submarines in build and coordinated scheduling and technical/engineering staff </li></ul><ul><li>during the build phase and Category 4 & 5 testing. </li></ul><ul><li>With the incorporation of the new Condor Microwave Electronic Surveillance Measures system, I was responsible for the </li></ul><ul><li>management of U.S and Australian sub-contractors and liaised with ASC to ensure successful initial modification and </li></ul><ul><li>integration of the system into the Collins class submarines. I assisted with the planning, scheduling and implementation of </li></ul><ul><li>Refit maintenance projects for HMAS Collins & Farncomb and coordinated Raytheon maintenance and modification activities </li></ul><ul><li>for Full Cycle Dockings and scheduled/unscheduled maintenance dockings. </li></ul><ul><li>With the culmination of the Build phase at the commissioning of HMAS Rankin, I assisted with the management of closeout </li></ul><ul><li>activities and coordination of resources involved in the completion of the $100M R1000 Submarine Build contract. I worked </li></ul><ul><li>closely with the Program Manager formulating financial reports (ETC/EAC), managing the R1000 cost accounts, reviewing </li></ul><ul><li>contract documentation and assessing outstanding deliverables.
