UK defense contractor SEA announced it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Australian-defense company Daronmont Technologies to address Royal Australian Navy requirements outlined in the Future Submarine (SEA 1000) and Hunter-class Frigate (SEA 5000) programs.
Daronmont Technologies specializes in the design, engineering, integration and support of complex high technology electronics and software-intensive systems.
The MoU outlines initial activities which will see the establishment of a specialist cell at Daronmont’s facility in Adelaide next year that will be populated by SEA training & simulation capabilities.
SEA says it would offer its open-architecture communication system and weapons launcher systems to meet Australia’s Future Submarine and Frigate requirements.
“SEA’s objective is to bring the best of today’s technology to Australia to enable world-leading future naval combat and mission systems development,” said Steve Hill, managing director, SEA. “Our focus on the continual development of open sub-systems that can be applied to a range of Prime Contractor-developed platforms, is part of the reason why we are able to provide such market-leading capability.”
