The story behind Red Ochre LABS

For nearly 70 years, Australian technologists at BAE Systems have been responsible for some of the world’s most cutting-edge defence systems.
Red Ochre LABS acknowledges the rich legacy of past achievements, celebrates the progress of today and provides tailwinds for future research and development opportunities.
Red Ochre Labs pays homage to Australia’s unique landscape as well as acknowledging red ochre’s use in technology development. Red ochre pigment was used in some of the earliest forms of communication and continues to be used as a raw material in many manufacturing and innovation processes.
