  2. Advise and Strike: The Development of the E7-A Wedgetail

    Delivered by SQNLDR Glenn Salmon and FLTLT Brad Machan on 01 September, 2015

    The E-7A Wedgetail represents an entirely new capability for the Australian Defence Force, providing an airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) platform that can fuse data from a variety of sources, analyse it and distribute it to other air and surface assets.

    Through its sate-of-the-art Multi-Role Electronically Scanned Array (MESA) radar complimented by advanced sensors and communications systems, the E-7A Wedgetail significantly multiplies the effectiveness of our existing Navy, Army and Air Force. It is perfectly placed to combine with current and future assets to help Australia maintain a capability edge well into the future.

    From the early days of Project AIR5077 to declaring Final Operational Capability in May 2015, the E-7A Wedgetail has grown to prove its worth during participation in exercises such as Bersama Lima, Cope North and Red Flag. The E-7A has also recently played a vital role in both Operation Southern Indian Ocean (SIO) and as an enduring element of Air Task Group 630 on Operation Okra in the Middle East. Squadron Leader Glenn Salmon led the deployment in support of Operation SIO and was the Executive Officer for the first rotation to deploy in support of Operation Okra. Flight Lieutenant Brad Machan is an Aircraft Captain and Qualified Flying Instructor on the E-7A and deployed as a crew captain on both Operation SIO and Okra.


    SQNLDR Glenn Salmon joined the RAAF in 1998 and completed a Bachelor of Technology in Aeronautical Engineering at the Australian Defence Force Academy. He graduated from No. 191 Pilots course in 2002 and was posted to fly the AP-3C Orion at RAAF Base Edinburgh. He completed a 4 year tour at No. 10 Squadron, completing multiple deployments on Operations Resolute, Slipper and Operation Astute. SQNLDR Salmon became a Qualified Flying Instructor (QFI) on the PC-9 advanced trainer at No.2 Flying Training School in 2007. In 2009 SQLNDR Salmon was subsequently posted back to Adelaide to instruct on the AP-3C for several years before being promoted and posted to 2SQN where he is currently the A Flight Commander. SQNLDR Salmon has over 4400 flying hours including over 950 hours as an instructor. He has deployed with the E-7A on Operation Southern Indian Ocean and Operation Okra.

    FLTLT Brad Machan joined the RAAF in 1996 as a direct entry Navigator graduating to F-111s in 1997. He spent 9 years on F-111s including an instructional tour at the School of Air Navigation. FLTLT Machan re-roled to Pilot in 2007 and was assigned a first assignment instructor pilot (FAIP) on PC-9A aircraft at RAAF Pearce. FLTLT Machan undertook fighter training until posting to No. 2 Squadron in 2011, since then he has participated in Operation Southern Indian Ocean and Okra as an Aircraft Captain and crew lead. Most recently, FLTLT Machan completed KC-30 refuelling certification trails and is currently a Qualified Flying Instructor at No. 2 Squadron.
