BAE Systems Australia receives defence grant
BAE Systems Australia has been awarded funding to continue its work on advanced radio frequency sensor technology by the Australian Department of Defence, the company announced on 9 November.
The funding is being issued via a Capability and Technology Demonstrator Program grant.
The company will continue its work on the development and demonstration of advanced radio frequency sensor technology that aims to significantly enhance battlespace awareness in the maritime domain.
Work on the Maritime Composite RF Sensor Performance project will run over 18 months.
Glynn Phillips, chief executive, BAE Systems Australia, said: ‘This is Australian technology that we’re developing which is focused on improving the performance of radar sensors on ships.
'Radar system performance can vary due to climate or terrain. This Australian technology is proving to be an important tactical tool as it allows the operator to optimise radar performance, no matter the environment. Proving this capability could lead to it being put to service on Australian naval ships and ultimately evolve into an important defence export.’
