Safran Electronics & Defense Australasia (SEDA) has received a contract from the Australian government for in-service support of the Royal Australian Navy’s (RAN's) infrared search and track systems.

Under the contract, SEDA will provide maintenance and support services to the RAN for five years, with options to extend for up to 15 years.

Christopher Pyne, Australia’s Minister for Defence, said: ‘The new contract will extend the company’s Australian footprint and support local employment with the addition of seven fulltime employees.

‘This will lead to a significant reduction in repair timeframes as significant sub-components will no longer need to be returned to France for overhaul and repair.’

SEDA plans to analyse local supply chain options to increase Australian industry capability.
