Chemring to develop EW solution for Australian market
Chemring Australia will develop an Australian-designed, manufactured and supported Electronic Attack solution under a new grant awarded by the Australian government. The $3.07 million Priority Industry Capability Innovation Program Grant will support the development of the system for sale in the domestic and international markets.
The Electronic Attack capability will interface with, and complement, the existing Electronic Surveillance System ‘Resolve’ developed by Chemring Technology Solutions (CTS), Chemring Australia’s sister company based in the UK. Chemring Australia will work closely with CTS to achieve these outcomes.
The funding will also support the establishment of an Australian capability to support the design, development, systems integration, manufacture and support of complex electronic systems. This will initially be achieved by the transfer of skills and technology from CTS.
Mark Hender, managing director of Chemring Australia, said: ‘The award of this funding is a significant step in the development of Chemring Australia’s capabilities. Chemring has already demonstrated a willingness to transfer capabilities to support the Australian Defence Force with the establishment of a state-of-the-art air-launched countermeasures manufacturing facility that was commissioned in 2012. This funding will allow us to do the same in the electronic warfare domain.’
