BAE receives Aussie EW funding
BAE Systems Australia has received AUD$4.9 million in funding to aid the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) in the development and demonstration of new electronic warfare technologies, the company announced on 23 November.
The project, called Cuttlefish, aims to develop counter-surveillance capabilities to enable the RAN to shape, disrupt and inhibit an adversary’s surveillance and targeting platforms. BAE Systems is working on developing the techniques to counter radio frequency emitters with the DST Group.
The funding will enable BAE Systems to continue to mature the Cuttlefish capability for the next 24 months, with the goal of carrying out sea trials in 2019.
