Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD) Communications System

BlueZone Group supported L-3 Communications, in an important project to relocate the Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD) Communications Training Facility to a permanent home at HMAS Kuttabul at Garden Island in Sydney. The delivery of the two LHD ships to the Royal Australian Navy provided an opportunity to establish a new building to accommodate the Communications Training Facility.
Following the successful completion of the L-3 Communications Integrated Communications System component of the trainer at Contractors Temporary Training Facility at Mascot, L-3 Communications engaged BlueZone to relocate and rebuild the trainer in the new facility, known as the Through Life Support Facility (TLSF) at HMAS Kuttabul.

In late 2015, BlueZone Group developed the Navy’s confidence through the preparation of the detailed planning and fitting of the TLSF for the movement of the communication modules across from the Mascot, L3 Communications. The increasing movement scope of the task included supporting infrastructure, equipment rack installation, power cabling and installation of signalling cable to Category 4.2 status ready for Set-to-Work by L-3 Communications.
