Major Project

Nulka anti ship missile decoy system

The Nulka active missile decoy is the most sophisticated soft-kill anti-ship missile defence system available for the protection of surface warships. It is currently deployed on over 150 Australian, US and Canadian warships.

The system is the result of a collaborative development between Australia and the US, and brings together advanced flight vehicle guidance and control techniques, and sophisticated RF electronic technologies. Fully autonomous after launch, the unique flight vehicle design allows the decoy’s flight-path to be maintained with a high degree of precision over a wide range of environmental conditions, resulting in extremely high levels of mission effectiveness against modern anti-ship missiles.

BAE Systems Australia is prime contractor and System Design Agent. Nulka is Australia’s largest regular defence export program and pre-planned product improvement activities are ongoing to enhance the performance of the system.

Benefit to customer:  The customer benefits by having sustainment, repair, resupply and capability upgrade support across the Navy fleets for the ongoing availability of the Nulka system.
