Perth-based companies Advanced Braking Technology and VEEM Ltd, will design and manufacture a specialised braking system for the Army’s Hawkei Protected Mobility Vehicle (Light). The Minister for Defence Industry, Melissa Price said Advanced Braking Technology was selected in May last year to provide a brake system for testing to Thales Australia, the manufacturer of the Hawkei.
“Advanced Braking Technology has been successful with its testing and will now partner with VEEM to manufacture the system with a contract value of around $2.1 million,” Minister Price said. 
The contract will help both Advanced Braking Technology and VEEM to diversify their customer bases world-wide and demonstrates their ability to meet Defence’s high engineering standards.
“The equipment has been developed from the proven Failsafe brake system, which has been used extensively within the mining sector for many years, both in Australia and globally,” Minister Price said. “Now our ADF will benefit from this world-leading technology designed right here in Australia. This is a win for both Defence and these Western Australian companies.”
