Minister for Defence Industry Pat Conroy convened a Projects of Concern Summit in Canberra on 31 March to discuss the OneSKY-CMATS project. It was attended by senior officials from Defence, infrastructure, Airservices Australia, and Thales Australia.

The OneSKY-CMATS project is a partnership to replace existing air traffic management systems with an advanced, integrated management and control system for civilian and military aviation.

Minister Conroy thanked Thales Australia and Airservices Australia for their constructive engagement at the summit, and for identifying pathways to improve efficiency and timely delivery.

“We are bringing new energy and senior attention to remediating Defence projects which are facing difficulties and delays, delivering on our commitment to hold regular Projects of Concern Summits,” he said.

“The CMATS project is delivering one of the most advanced air traffic control systems in the world and I am pleased to see a strong commitment from all parties involved to get it back on track.

“I look forward to continuing to work closely with Defence, Thales and Airservices Australia, providing leadership and oversight, to ensure the Australian Defence Force gets the capability it needs.”

Since the previous summit, a remediation plan for OneSKY-CMATS has been agreed to and signed.
