Strengthening Australia's defence and security capabilities.
 
BAE Systems is Australia's most versatile defence and security company. From air and maritime sustainment to shipbuilding, we have a long and proud heritage of providing advanced defence technology which protects both people and national security, keeping critical information and infrastructure secure.
 
Our strengths and core capabilities include providing the design, manufacture, upgrade and support services to the Australian Defence Force, cyber intelligence and commercial organisations across the country. We offer total capability in vital areas such as through-life support, security, logistics and systems integration.
 
Defence is striving for enhanced capability at lower cost. Today's operating environment is also more complex and less predictable than ever. 
 
Australia’s air force, navy and army are required to deploy at short notice virtually anywhere in the world, fully equipped and with a strong, sustainable supply chain. BAE Systems Australia is meeting these challenges — while searching for new ways to provide our customers with a competitive edge across the air, maritime, land and cyber domains.
 
From a dusty paddock in Woomera in 1954 to delivering the next generation of advanced anti-submarine warships in Adelaide – we’ve come a long way in almost 70 years of operation in Australia.
