Project description

The Aeronautical Life Support Equipment (ALSE) product range includes:

  • Aviation Night Vision Equipment
  • Helmets
  • Life rafts
  • Oxygen Masks
  • Cold Water Immersion Suits
  • Personal Flotation Devices
  • Ballistic Vests

Approximately 80% of ADF ALSE is used by more than one aircraft platform, and is therefore centrally managed.  ALSE, which is unique to an aircraft is normally managed along with that platform’s other systems.

Aeronautical Life Support Logistics Management Unit (ALSLMU) provides logistics management of common fit ALSE used across the ADF. Situated at RAAF Edinburgh, ALSLMU is part of Surveillance Response System Program Office within Aerospace Systems Division.

Australian Industry supports deeper level maintenance of ALSE, as well as supply of some equipment. ALSLMU has contracted out maintenance of Air Sea Rescue Kits and is investigating industry capability to contract out common ALSE logistics support to the ADF.
