AMOG was engaged to conduct, plan, execute and deliver the System Safety program for the RAN's FFG upgrade and remediation programs.

System Safety Program

AMOG was engaged to conduct the System Safety program for the FFG-UP for Thales Australia. This included conducting the full suite of MIL-STD-882C deliverables: PHL, PHA, SSHA, O&SHA, HHA, TEHA, SVR, and a number of other deliverables. AMOG were also responsible for conducting the Software Assurance aspects of the program for ADACS and the WCP systems. 

In supporting this program, AMOG allocated a full-time senior safety engineer in-site with Thales at Garden Island in Sydney, and had a team of safety engineers (up to 4 more) conducting analysis and developing reports. 

AMOG supported this task for approximately 4 years through to a successful conclusion. The Safety Program conducted on FFG-UP is one of the most complete programs currently delivered to Navy.

System Safety Support to FFG Upgrade

As part of the FFG remediation program, AMOG Consulting was brought on to plan, execute and deliver the System Safety Program for the Adelaide Class FFG Upgrade program. This upgrade included improvements to capability and enhanced supportability in Anti-Ship Missile Defence (ASMD), On-board Training, Tactical Data Links, Torpedo Self-Defence, Mine Avoidance, Hull Mounted Sonar and environmental compliance and logistic support services through the upgraded Team Trainer (TT) and Operator Trainer (OT) facilities as well as the establishment of the Warfare System Support Centre (WSSC). AMOG has been assisting with this program throughout the last three years.

AMOG was contracted to provide the full suite of MIL-STD-882C safety deliverables as well as certification documents (prior certification arguments for VLS) and software assurance assessments against RTCA/DO-178B.

AMOG was involved in analysing all these systems using various processes, tools and techniques as the situation required and in accordance with MIL-STD-882C. In general they included techniques such as Failure Mode Analysis, Causal Analysis, SWIFT workshops, Sensitivity Analysis, Fault Trees, Event Trees and State transition diagrams.
