Anywise to develop Military Bridge Systems safety and usage technology

Updated: Jul 23, 2021

Today the Australian Minister for Defence Industry announced that Anywise has been awarded a contract to deliver safety and maintenance monitoring systems for Military Bridges.

Melbourne, Vic - Anywise is developing a fleet agnostic HUMS that is modular, scalable and able to be used for all bridge types and configurations. This system will provide meaningful and reliable data on structural integrity, fleet availability, use and overall system health, as well as reducing life cycle costs.

“This technology would not only provide Defence with peace-of-mind in terms of the safety of personnel using these bridges, but it also holds significant export potential for the company,” Minister Price said.

Military bridge users implicitly rely on the structural integrity, configuration and reliability of the bridge system. Over time, elements of these modular systems wear and age at varying rates. Ensuring the safety of users and closely managing the remaining usable life of a bridge system is a challenging proposition and is essential throughout the life of the capability.

"We are proud to be developing this technology for Defence. The Anywise team brings with it deep experience in Defence and Industry and integrates technology, design and a highly collaborative process to solve our clients most challenging problems. We are very excited to continue to build on our close relationship with Defence to deliver this important capability." Adam Evans Managing Director
