CEA Technologies and the Defence Science and Technology Group have signed a five-year research agreement to develop new solutions for future requirements in radar, communications, and electronic warfare.
The research agreement was signed in Canberra by the Chief Defence Scientist, Dr Alex Zelinsky, and Merv Davis, CEO of CEA Technologies.
CEA Technologies has delivered the world’s first fourth generation Active Phased Array Radar technology for Australia’s ANZAC Class frigates.
The collaboration has relevance to programs such as the Future Frigates and will also help inform future programs in the aerospace, maritime and land domains.
Defence Industry minister Christopher Pyne said future systems needed to ensure the Australian Defence Force had comprehensive situational awareness to make decisions more quickly in combat.
“I welcome this great partnership which brings together our Defence scientists’ signal processing, electronic protection, tracking and data fusion capabilities with CEA Technologies’ active array and radar expertise,” Pyne said.
“DST Group and CEA Technologies will bring complementary strengths to the collaboration on advances in array capabilities.
“I congratulate the company and Defence on this strategic partnership which endeavours to produce more game-changing capabilities for the Australian Defence Force.”
