Business description:

Evolving from a world-leading operator of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) in extreme polar environments and Australia’s leading AUV training program, they have expanded into academic research, commercial maritime industries and the defence sector as a trusted provider and operator of integrated underwater robotics and sensor networks.

Key areas of services include:

  • Academic and commercial marine research
  • Oceanographic surveys
  • Pipeline inspections
  • Underwater infrastructure inspections
  • AUV and USV Operator and Mission Controller training

The company operates three AUVs (ISE Explorer, REMUS 100 and Iver4-580), three USVs (WAM-V 16 and two Micro ASVs design and built by AMC) and a number of ROVs.

Projects / tasks:

The intern would participate in the refinement of a post mission AUV/USV performance monitoring software tools used to support the facilities’ operational AUVs/USVs.  A variety of design, coding, and testing tasks are required to bring this project to life.

Technical skills:

Programming experience in Matlab or Python, with a willingness to learn is required. Programming experience in C++, JavaScript, or SQL are desirable. Knowledge of communication standards such as TCP/UDP and RS232, general networking, and software/hardware interfacing and experience with LINUX/OSX based computers would be beneficial. Experience with geospatial data analysis, including the use of Geographic Information Systems, would be particularly beneficial.

Intern interpersonal qualities:

Strong communication skills are needed to work with the project leader and team of AUV/ USV engineers to capture specifications, report on progress, manage issues and document developments and progress.  The candidate will need to work within a multi-disciplinary team from varying technical backgrounds.

Business Description

Manufacturers of Propulsion and gyro stabilization systems,  Submarine Valves and castings,  Ride control foils up to 15 tonnes. Current Defence work includes : Collins Class valves;  Collins Class machinery components;  CPP Propeller assessment and repair; Austal Ride Controls – LCS for USA delivery.

Projects / tasks

  • Research, document and present emerging propulsion technology developments to Propulsion Team
  • Development of a CFD model for prediction of propeller flow phenomenon
  • Develop automated propeller geometry data generation package for integration into propeller modelling software
  • Design of propeller installation/removal tooling

Technical skills

3D CAD modelling and drafting – either NX Unigraphics or Solidworks.  ANSYS experience is ideal but not essential.  Knowledge of G code is ideal but not essential  Office document and spreadsheets.

Intern interpersonal qualities

Excellent communications and written skills. Highly motivated towards marine propulsion, design, and manufacturing.

Business description:

We design and manufacture maritime handling systems predominantly for defence application and in particular for Australia on the Collins Class Submarine. We look after the refurbishment, sustainment and upgrade of our equipment in Australia.

Projects / tasks:

  • Design of jigs and fixtures
  • Problem resolution (Problem Reports)
  • Developing engineering process documentation
  • Reviewing Survey Reports

Technical skills:

Basic CAD skills, problem solving skills, basic computer literacy (Word, Excel, Visio etc.), good written and verbal communication skills.

Intern interpersonal qualities:

Working collaboratively in small teams, desire to solve problems and self-motivated.
