CEA Technologies receives Aussie radar contract
CEA Technologies will supply radars for the Australian Army under a A$137 million ($93 million) contract announced by the Australian Department of Defence on 15 November.
The radars will form part of a new ground-based air defence system for deployed forces.
The vehicle-mounted radars will be delivered in long- and short-range variants, with the short-range variant to be mounted on the army’s Hawkei vehicles.
CEA Technologies also supplies radar systems for the Royal Australian Navy's fleet of Anzac-class frigates.
Minister for Defence Linda Reynolds said: ‘This air defence capability combines world-leading Australian radar technology with a highly effective air defence system that will protect our service men and women from future airborne threats.
‘I congratulate CEA for adapting these radars from those already in service with the Royal Australian Navy, confirming its reputation as an agile, innovative company and a key strategic partner for defence.’
