LAND 19 PHASE 7B - Short Range Ground Based Air Defence (SRGBAD)
The Australian Government recently announced first pass approval for Project LAND 19 Phase 7B which will deliver Army’s future Short Range Ground Based Air Defence (SRGBAD) capability. This approval provided for the release of a Single Supplier Limited Tender to Raytheon Australia as the Prime System Integrator (PSI).
Raytheon’s proposal for second pass consideration by Government will be based upon the proven Raytheon/KONGSBERG National Advanced Surface to Air Missile System (NASAMS) capability that is fielded in seven nations, including the United States.
The project is scheduled for second pass consideration by Government in 2019, with an Initial Operating Capability established by the 2022/23 financial year.
The acquisition program will be preceded by Risk Mitigation Activities where Raytheon, in collaboration with CEA Technologies and Thales Australia, will assess the potential integration of CEA’s AESA radar technology and Thales’ protected mobility vehicles.
Raytheon Australia is committed to the role of local suppliers (including small to medium enterprises - SMEs) as part of a sovereign and capable Australian Defence industry. We value the strength of our relationships with our local partners who play a crucial role in the success of what we do. Every day we work with our trusted network of Australian capability partners to deliver solutions that meet the highest standards of quality, affordability, safety and performance to support our customer’s mission.
As the proposed PSI for Army’s SRGBAD capability under LAND 19 Ph 7B, Raytheon Australia’s solution has a strong focus on Australian industry participation and the creation of local employment opportunities. We are dedicated to the identification of opportunities for Australian industry to participate in the project and enhance local industry capabilities. As part of this process we will implement an Australian Industry Capability (AIC) development plan to identify Australian suppliers who are able to support activities in areas such as component manufacture, assembly and test, systems integration and in-country sustainment for LAND 19 Ph 7B. This will also identify opportunities for Australian industry to support future NASAMS programs across the globe.
