Logistic Engineering Services (LES) and BAE Systems Maritime Australia have signed a Services Agreement for software capability, training and consultancy services to support the Hunter Class frigate program.
"BAE Systems and LES have worked together across a number of projects since LES was established more than 20 years ago, including the Canberra Class LHD and JORN programs, so we are pleased we have been able to establish an SA to provide software, consultancy services and training to the Hunter program," the company said in a statement.
LES is a veteran-owned Australian SME that provides Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) Services to the Department of Defence and Defence industry.
Through its consultancy services, ILS training and delivery of sovereign software capability, LES aims to help BAE Systems Maritime Australia deliver ongoing training to their expanding workforce while providing specialist consultancy services in areas where specific skillsets take time to grow.
In addition, BAE Systems Maritime Australia has purchased LES’ sovereign software (eMRD and eLORA) to support the management of specific ILS data.
"LES is very proud to be supporting the BAE Systems Maritime Australia team and the Hunter program, and we look forward to continuing this strong relationship," the company said.
