Canberra to bolster Australia’s radar capabilities

The Minister for Defence Industry, Melissa Price, has announced the release of the Enhanced active phased array and passive radar capability Sovereign Industrial Capability Priority Plan.

Minister Price said the capability was integral to the Australian Defence Force’s ability to shape, deter and respond.

“Australia boasts world-leading active phased array radar capability and we have enormous potential in the development of passive radar systems and related technologies,” Minister Price said.

“We need a strong partnership with Australian industry to maintain and grow the capability advantage provided by our innovative Australian companies and their substantial expertise in these radar systems.
