Ferra to manufacture submarine navigation radars for Thales Germany

Defense contractor Thales Germany has contracted Australian company Ferra Engineering for sub-assemblies for Phoenice, a Thales tactical navigation radar system for submarines.

“Ferra’s success recognises a significant shift from automotive parts in 2002 to the innovative advanced manufacturing company Ferra is today, supplying complex assemblies globally,” Australian defense industry minister Christopher Pyne said announcing the contract.

“This contract will see the creation of up to 25 jobs with Ferra and throughout the supply chain, with the possibility of more down the track.

“Ferra will deliver two systems to one of Thales Germany’s existing European customers, with substantial potential future sales,” he said.

The project will have flow on benefits to Ferra’s supply chain, with more than 15 Australian based suppliers engaged to deliver the project.

Ferra Engineering is a Brisbane-based company specialising in the design, manufacture, assembly and test of defence and aerospace sub-assemblies, both locally and internationally.
