Defence Solutions - Solutions on the Ground
Soldier systems and weapon integration
Our services on the ground include training and simulation, supply, integrated logistics and support, maintenance of land materiel and equipment and project management. We also specialise in body armour, night vision equipment and thermal weapon sights and high precision manufactured components.
Military vehicles and vehicle modification
BAE Systems and Patria have teamed for Army's Land 400 program. Our team brings together 60 years of Australian experience with global expertise in production and sustainment. Australia will benefit from our established networks and track record of successful technology transfer to user nations.
In 2012 we completed a decade-long project to upgrade and integrate systems for M113 vehicles. More than 1000 people invested over 1 million hours into the project.
Around the world, we have five armoured vehicle families in service, including the BAE Hagglunds Cv90 , the long-serving M113, the M88 and fighting vehicles such as the M2A3 Bradley, the Fv510 Warrior and the M109 Paladin Howitzer. In addition, we’re involved in the refurbishment and upgrade of in-service Cv90 and M2A3 Bradley fleets world-wide and new vehicle programs in the US.
