Modern Maritime Conference: Australia’s Energy Future

The urgent need to address climate change and at the same time continue to supply the economy with the affordable energy it needs to grow and help to maintain our standard of living is a conundrum facing many nations all over the world. The pain of transition is being felt particularly acutely here in Australia.

In the shipping world, the challenge of meeting the low sulphur fuel regulations, the resulting shift in fuel demand, and the ongoing need to power maritime trade, while meeting the IMO GHG emissions reduction targets, has created a significant time of change for the global shipping industry.

Being spotted by a magnetic sensor is a permanent threat for both surface ships and submarines. Magnetic sensors are embedded in underwater mines to detect vessels as well as in patrol aircraft to detect submarines using MAD technology (Magnetic Anomaly Detection). To counter this risk, navies have to reduce the magnetic signature of their vessels. To do so, they can use degaussing system or deperming system or both of them.

Degaussing system is installed onboard vessels to compensate the magnetic signature by creating the opposite magnetic field through coils supplied by converters. ECA Group solution key advantages are modularity, robustness and ease of use. It can be used for every type of vessels from mine hunters to aircraft carriers as well as submarines. This solution is sea proven and already used in a large number of vessels.

Deperming system performs an external magnetic treatment of the vessel through loops of cables supplied by converters. ECA Group solution is an overrun facility with deperming loop installed underwater on the seabed with the vessel sailing over this loop. The key advantages of this solution are reduced downtime (full operation in less than one day when wrapping system needs two weeks), reduced required workforce and can be used for different type and size of vessels such as surface ships and submarines.

The overrun facility includes a fixed ranging system and compensation loops allowing vertical separation of induced and permanent magnetizations as well as simulation and prediction of the magnetic signature anywhere on Earth.

Visit ECA Group at booth 4G9 and have a talk with their experts.

1. Re-thinking naval programs business models to optimize costs and reduce lead times

  • Alain HOUARD – Vice President Marine & Offshore Industry, Dassault Systèmes
    The world is experiencing a profound global transformation in the way we invent, learn, produce and trade. It is as great a change as the Renaissance that occurred in Europe from the 14th to the 16th century. Virtual experience platforms are the infrastructure of this Industry Renaissance. As the only platform that’s both a system of operations and a business model, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is the most powerful way for naval shipyards to drive their transformation, enabling them to innovate with operational excellence as well as redefining the relationships across their entire value network, from the navy to their ecosystem of suppliers.
  • B&R: Chris Bridges-Taylor – GM
    B&R Enclosures is an independent, 100% Australian family-owned and operated business. B&R Enclosures has been designing and manufacturing enclosure and cabinet solutions for more than 60 years. The company encompasses four divisions: B&R Industrial, B&R Data ICT, B&R Hazardous Areas and B&R Residential Commercial. B&R Enclosures was part of the South Australia Virtual Shipyard program, the company initiated its digital transformation using the 3DExperience platform to optimise its manufacturing processes to better supply Defence Prime contractors’ supply chain.


2. Aligning the workforce of the Future with defence industry needs

  • Empowering the naval workforce of the future through digital experience platforms: Eric Chow - Academic Lead Dassault Systemes AP South, Workforce of the Future.
    The future is in people. The transformation at play in the Naval sector implies new ways of thinking and along with it a rising demand for new skills in the workplace. Dassault Systèmes is collaborating with academic institutions, shipyards, as well as small and medium enterprises to build capabilities by using virtual worlds on virtual experience platforms. Giving current and future employees ready access to rich knowledge, know-how and collaborative abilities to imagine, test, create and operate holistic experiences in both the real and virtual worlds.
  • Align Naval industry requirements with University curriculums: David Harvey - Senior Lecturer in Engineering Systems and Mechanical Design at University of Adelaide.

 

The conference will be moderated by Francois Mathieu - Consulting and Services Director, Marine & Offshore Industry, Dassault Systèmes.

Utilising Electrohydrostatic Actuation Technology for Critical Naval Subsea and Surface Missions

Date:
Wednesday 9 October
Time:
1500-1600

This event is open and complimentary to PACIFIC 2019 trade visitors, exhibitors and conference delegates.

Missions for Submarines, Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) and Autonomous Surface Vessels (ASV) may require transiting the open ocean and conducting over-the-horizon operations in the littoral zone for months. These longer duration missions will demand highly reliable control actuation to ensure mission success, survivability of high value payloads, and to remain undetected.

Electrohydrostatic Actuators (EHA), often referred to as “power by wire”, are fully self-contained actuation systems that combine design elements from electric and electrohydraulic actuation. Moog began investing to develop advanced EHA technology in the late 1980’s for the next generation of “more electric” aircraft flight controls. Over the last two decades, we have matured the technology making significant advancements in performance, reliability, weight and design footprint making it ideal for critical naval subsea and surface missions.

For those familiar with the national strategy on the importance of RAS they will be aware of bi-partisan recognition that RAS (and its supporting AI) offers opportunities to enhance the capacity of both people and platforms.

The strategy, launched in Jul 2018, examines the contribution RAS makes to areas such as resources, healthcare, infrastructure, the environment, distribution, agriculture, a range of social services and of course Defence.

A common theme is that Australia is a big island with a small population – so is naturally predisposed to needing all the help it can develop from Human-Autonomy Teaming; whether that’s to best enhance our natural resources through to defending our national interests. The national approach to needing autonomous systems reflects that Australia’s geographic responsibilities are both cast and extreme.

This presentation examines the leading role the Navy, DST and industry took in the conduct of the largest activity in this field ever conducted by western allies; the benefits to Australian and Australian based industry; and where next.
