Cirrus Real Time Processing Systems will continue working with the Royal Australian Navy to provide additional Tactical Electronic Warfare simulation training systems, after successfully delivering the capability earlier this year.

A new contract awarded to the company will see the delivery of an additional 39 workstations to the navy, adding to the 35 workstations provided by Cirrus to the School of Maritime Warfare at HMAS Watson in May this year.

Of the new workstations, HMAS Stirling will receive 12 while HMAS Watson will receive a further 27.

Australia's Minister for Defence Industry, Melissa Price, said: ‘The project total investment of $7.5 million will support the electronic warfare capabilities of the navy and ensure new recruits and current navy personnel will have access to advanced technological systems and additional training capacity.

‘Small businesses like Cirrus are an example of how our defence industry is maturing and developing cutting-edge technologies that in days gone by would have been delivered by international companies.’
