Lockheed Martin Australia is seeking potential suppliers who can contribute to the development of an integrated air and missile defence system that can fuse and share information to enhance the accuracy and speed of response to air and missile threats.
This system will form part of Project AIR 6500, a Joint Air Battle Management System (JABMS) that will interconnect many disparate platforms, systems and sensors across the air, land, sea, space, electromagnetic and cyber domains into a collaborative environment that provides shared situational awareness of the battlespace and the ability to rapidly plan responses to threats.
This project is part of the RAAF’s vision to transform itself into a fully networked 5th generation force able to prevail against increasingly complex and lethal threats.
This investment will provide the foundation for an enhanced integrated air and missile defence system for the ADF, ensuring that the delivered system is able to fuse and share information to enhance the accuracy and speed of ADF’s systems’ response to air and missile threats. The ADF will also acquire ground-based active electronically scanned array radars and passive radars and expand Australia’s access to air and space situational awareness information, including through space-based systems.
Expressions of interest close 31 July 2021.
