CEA and DST sign advanced radar research agreement

A five-year research and development agreement has been announced between CEA Technologies and the Defence Science and Technology Group.

The organisations will develop new solutions for future Defence requirements in communications, radar and electronic warfare.

CEA Technologies has delivered the world’s first fourth-generation active phased array radar technology for Australia’s ANZAC Class frigates.

This collaboration has relevance to programs such as the Future Frigates and will also help inform future programs in the aerospace, maritime and land domains.

“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,” said Minister for Defence Industry Christopher Pyne.

He said future systems needed to ensure the Australian Defence Force had comprehensive situational awareness to make decisions more quickly in combat.

“DST Group and CEA Technologies will bring complementary strengths to the collaboration on advances in array capabilities.

“This agreement includes collaboration with a significant focus on robust and resilient capabilities in complex environments.

“I congratulate the company and Defence on this strategic partnership, which endeavours to produce more game-changing capabilities for the Australian Defence Force,” he said.

The research agreement was signed in Canberra by the Chief Defence Scientist Dr Alex Zelinsky and Merv Davis, CEO of CEA Technologies.
