BAE Systems Australia has been selected to upgrade Australia’s Jindalee Operational Radar Network (JORN), the company announced on 5 March.

The long-range high frequency radar network protects Australia’s coastal approaches through a network of three remote radars in Queensland, Western Australia and the Northern Territory.

The radars support the Australian Defence Force’s air and maritime operations, border surveillance, disaster relief and search and rescue operations.

BAE Systems will deliver the JORN upgrade in collaboration with Raytheon Australia, South Australian SME Daronmont Technologies and infrastructure specialist RCR Property Services.

BAE Systems’ Joint Open Innovation Network (JOIN) will also focus on activities to support the upgrade of JORN and the development of future JORN and intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance capability.
