Aussie SME selected to develop ADF bridging support technology

WFEL’s Dry Support Bridge launching system integrated onto a Rheinmetall RMMV chassis

Melbourne-based Anywise has been selected to provide the Australian Defence Force with a next-generation bridging support technology capability and to deliver safety and maintenance monitoring systems for military bridges.

Melbourne-based Anywise has been selected to provide the Australian Defence Force with a next-generation bridging support technology capability and to deliver safety and maintenance monitoring systems for military bridges.

Military bridge users implicitly rely on the structural integrity, configuration and reliability of the bridge system. Over time, elements of these modular systems wear and age at varying rates. Ensuring the safety of users and closely managing the remaining usable life of a bridge system is a challenging proposition and is essential throughout the life of the capability.

Defence Industry Minister Melissa Price made the announcement of Anywise's selection, saying, "This technology would not only provide Defence with peace-of-mind in terms of the safety of personnel using these bridges, but it also holds significant export potential for the company."

Anywise is developing a fleet agnostic HUMS that is modular, scalable and able to be used for all bridge types and configurations. This system will provide meaningful and reliable data on structural integrity, fleet availability, use and overall system health, as well as reducing life cycle costs.

Adam Evans, managing director of Anywise, welcomed the minister's announcement, saying, "We are proud to be developing this technology for Defence. The Anywise team brings with it deep experience in Defence and industry and integrates technology, design and a highly collaborative process to solve our clients most challenging problems. We are very excited to continue to build on our close relationship with Defence to deliver this important capability."

Anywise has commenced a detailed design phase of this project and said it welcomed the opportunity to work with other Australian companies that have technology available or emerging for this project.

Anywise consulting formed in 2014 to address a growing need in the market. Anywise integrates people, processes and tools, forms high performing teams and helps its clients deliver their most challenging projects.
