BAE Systems Australia has a long and proud heritage in the development, manufacture, upgrade and support of world-leading combat and fast jet trainer aircraft. We operate throughout Australia and across the globe to support the Australian Defence Force (ADF) wherever, whenever and whatever its challenges may be.
We provide support to the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) across the entire life cycle of the air sector – from design, development and production, through to the provision of aircraft, training, support and maintenance.
BAE Systems Australia’s sustainment of the F-35 aircraft enables us to play a key role in the largest and most advanced military aircraft program in the world. Led by the US Department of Defence and Lockheed Martin, the collaborative F-35 program delivers a stealthy, multi-role attack aircraft capable of operating from both land and sea.
Our F-35 sustainment activities is delivering 400 new jobs over the life of the program. It has enabled opportunities for Australian industry to build a capability set that will remain in service until the middle of the century.
