BAE Systems Australia’s Jindalee Operational Radar Network (JORN) program has been formally awarded ISO 55001 Asset Management certification by international certification body TQCSI Yaran.
The certification recognises BAE Systems Australia’s 'advanced capability in asset management, complex systems delivery and data exploitation.'
The audit conducted by TQCSI assessed all aspects of the JORN program, including engagement with all remote radar sites, the sounders and transponders maintenance team and the deeper level maintenance site, covering JORN sites across five states.
“The JORN team members should be exceptionally proud of their efforts in achieving international recognition," BAE Systems Australia Managing Director of Defence Delivery Andrew Gresham said. “This certification officially acknowledges our commitment to our role as capability steward for the Commonwealth on this vital sovereign security infrastructure.
“Following the ISO 55001 certification in 2020 for the BAE Systems’ corporate asset management system and application to our Lead-In Fighter (LIF) program, the JORN certification demonstrates that we are developing truly world-class asset management capability to underpin our work sustaining and optimising some of Australia’s most significant sovereign defence assets.”
