Safran Electronics and Defense Australasia has established a new high-technology facility in Sydney, which was officially opened by the Australian government on 6 November.

The facility features around 100sqm of new workrooms including a clean room, laser room, a climatic chamber and specialised equipment, as well as approximately 200sqm of office space for 25 people with room for expansion for up to 50 people.

Safran delivers and supports complex systems on a variety of Australian Defence Force platforms including the Collins-class submarines and the MRH-90 and Tiger helicopters.

Christopher Pyne, Australia’s Minister for Defence, said: ‘Safran has developed apprenticeship programmes covering mechanics, logistics and business management. This will ensure that Safran and other Australian defence companies have access to a trained, highly skilled workforce well into the future.'
