Five-year R&D agreement to develop radar and electronic warfare solutions for Australian Defence

Five-year R&D agreement to develop radar and electronic warfare solutions for Australian Defence

On March 1, the Australian Minister for Defence Industry,
the Hon Christopher Pyne MP, announced
a five-year research and development agreement between the Defence Science and Technology Group
and CEA
to develop new solutions for Defence’s future requirements in
radar, communications, and electronic warfare. The research agreement was
signed in Canberra by the Chief Defence Scientist, Dr Alex Zelinsky, and Mr
Merv Davis, CEO of CEA Technologies.

The DST Group is the
Australian government's lead agency responsible for applying science and
technology to safeguard Australia and its national interests.

CEA Technologies
specialises in the design, development and manufacture of advanced radar and
communications solutions for civil and military applications.

CEA Technologies has previously delivered
the world’s first fourth generation Active Phased Array Radar technology for
Australia’s ANZAC Class frigates.

This collaboration has relevance to programs such as the
Future Frigates and will also help inform future programs in the aerospace,
maritime and land domains. There will be significant focus on robust and
resilient capabilities in complex environments.

DST Group and CEA Technologies are expected to bring
complementary strengths to the collaboration on advances in array capabilities,
combining Defence scientists’ signal processing, electronic protection, tracking
and data fusion capabilities with CEA Technologies’ active array and radar

Minister Pyne said future systems needed to ensure the
Australian Defence Force had comprehensive situational awareness to make
decisions more quickly in combat.

“I welcome this great partnership which brings together our
Defence scientists’ signal processing, electronic protection, tracking and data
fusion capabilities with CEA Technologies’ active array and radar expertise,” he

 “I congratulate the
company and Defence on this strategic partnership which endeavours to produce
more game-changing capabilities for the Australian Defence Force.”
