BAE Systems is creating a sovereign high-speed weapons industry for Australia.
We are the only industry partner of Australia’s Department of Defence with established in-country engineering capabilities to design, prototype, manufacture, sustain and integrate complex weapons systems.
For more than 30 years, we have been a key partner and Australian industry lead in programs such as HiFiRE, the Evolved SeaSparrow Missile (ESSM), Nulka and the Advanced Short Range Air-to-Air Missile (ASRAAM). We also have a rich history of collaboration with global defence companies.
Australia’s future guided weapons and explosive ordnance (GWEO) investments include hypersonic long-range strike missiles and hypersonic and ballistic missile defence systems.
Successfully creating an enduring sovereign capability will require the knowledge and experience of the research and technology community, led by the Defence Science and Technology Group and academia.
It will provide a solid foundation for a more sustainable and successful local defence industry, while showcasing the best industrial capabilities that Australia and our allies have to offer.
Our success across high-speed weapons programs so far provides us with essential experience and technical expertise to partner with the Commonwealth and their strategic industry partners to support the advancement of Australia’s capabilities in this field.
