Ultra Electronics to work on early warning tech for Australia

Ultra Electronics Avalon Systems will receive $1.7 million of Australian government funding to develop and demonstrate new ship-defense technologies, Australian minister for defense industry Christopher Pyne announced on Thursday.

Minister Pyne said this innovation project would develop techniques to provide naval ships with early warning of incoming low flying air threats, such as anti-ship missiles.

“This project will complement existing ship-borne radar systems,” he said.

“I am pleased to announce Ultra Electronics Avalon Systems Pty Ltd will receive funding to take this innovative technology to the next level.”

The minister’s statement added that on December 5, 2016, the government launched the Defence Innovation Hub, which brings together existing Defence innovation programs to deliver a more streamlined and agile approach to Defence investment in innovation.
