Saab projects selected for Project Management Awards

The Australian Institute of Project Management has selected two Saab customer projects for Project Management Achievement Awards (PMAA). These awards have been selected for their demonstration of professionalism in project management.

Projects that have won state awards are:

  • The Counter Rocket, Artillery and Mortar project which delivered the Giraffe AMB radar to the Australian Army in Afghanistan in December 2010 has won the Victorian Chapter PMAA Defence and Aerospace category and also the Project of the Year for Victoria.
  • The Anti-Ship Missile Defence project which delivered an upgraded 9LV combat management system to the Royal Australian Navy ship HMAS PERTH in May 2011 has won the Australian Capital Territory Chapter PMAA Defence and Aerospace category.

“These awards show that Saab has performed in an exemplary way towards our customers so that they are able to achieve their goals in minimum time,” says Brian Adams, Managing Director of Saab Technologies Australia.

The AIPM Chapters state-based winners will go forward to the 2011 National Conference which will be held in conjunction with the International Project Management Association World Congress in Brisbane in October.

Commodore Michael Houghton (Director General Major Surface Ships) said about the ANZAC Frigate Anti-Ship Missile Defence project:

“Many individuals contributed over several years to this program and as well as being an outstanding technical success, the ASMD capability is an excellent example of what can be achieved in an Alliance approach where all individuals are committed to solving problems, achieving solutions and delivering world class technology in the face of difficult and complex challenges.”

Saab congratulates the Australian Defence Materiel Organisation for their outstanding achievements in being selected for these prestigious awards.
