Application of systems engineering to support operations and Defence acquisition

Awarded for demonstrating the ability to integrate modelling and simulation with real world coalition command and control (C2) systems, utilizing a systems engineering process, which has enabled the early demonstration of technology gaps and problems in planned acquisitions required to support ongoing operations in Afghanistan:

  • Thea Clarke
  • Dr Shari Soutberg
  • Dr John O'Neill
  • Dr Paul Gaertner

Measurement techniques for the characterisation of magnetostrictive and magnetic shape memory materials

Awarded for significant advances to the development and exploitation of novel magnetostrictive and magnetic shape alloy technologies for defence applications, thereby laying the groundwork for developing international acceptance standards and contributing to future substantial enhancement of military capabilities of the The Technical Cooperation Program (TTCP) member nations:

  • Dr Scott Moss

Joint operating assignment corrosion health monitoring on aircraft

Awarded for exceptional scientific contribution to developing and assessing techniques for in-situ monitoring corrosion levels using a range of advance sensor types, and for developing the foundation for Structural Health Monitoring systems to be used in future military aircraft used by TTCP nations:

  • Dr Bruce Hinton
  • Mr Peter Trathen
  • Dr Grant McAdam
  • Dr Alan Wilson

Nondestructive evaluation of asset life extension and integrity

Awarded for world-leading collaborative research to develop and evaluate new model-assisted methods to quantify the probability of detection of defects using nondestructive inspections:

  • Dr Geoff Hugo
  • Dr Cayt Harding

Development of environmental tolerance values for Defence sites contaminated with energetic materials

Awarded for significant contributions to collaborative research to advance knowledge and understanding of ecotoxicology of energetic materials and to improve the ecological risk assessment of testing and training ranges at defense installations in TTCP nations:

  • Dr Arthur Provatas

Personal award

Awarded for outstanding leadership, innovation and contributions to a wide variety of research activities in support of the Health Usage Monitoring (HUM) Group and TTCP over two decades:
