Strengthening Australia's capability

Defence, security and economic prosperity
From a dusty paddock in Woomera in 1954 to being selected in 2018 to deliver the next generation of advanced anti-submarine warships in Adelaide, we’ve come a long way in 65 years of operation in Australia.
Investing in Australia's...
We are Australia's most versatile defence and security company. We offer the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and our security customers total capability in vital areas such as through-life support, security, logistics and systems integration.
 
Our customers' needs have changed. Defence is striving for enhanced capability at lower cost. Today's operating environment is also more complex and less predictable than ever. The ADF is 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. Working closely with the ADF and our other customers, we are delivering innovative and cost-effective through-life solutions.
