For more than 65 years we have searched for new ways to provide our customers in Australia with a competitive edge across air, land, sea, cyber, space and electronic domains.
BAE Systems provides innovative solutions and critical capabilities that perform optimally in complex environments, ensuring the customer maintains the capability edge required.
We employ a skilled workforce of some 4,100 people in more than 40 locations across Australia and work closely with local partners to support economic development by transferring knowledge, skills and technology.
Our work helps keep Australia safe and contributes to creating a more prosperous and innovative nation.
Across Australia, our technologies operate from the depths of the oceans to the far reaches of space.
We are committed to delivering proven and cost effective solutions across air, land, sea, cyber, space and electronic domains and leverage technology developments and advancements across our portfolios in order to maximise Australian industry involvement for all our projects.
We’ve come a long way: from a dusty paddock in Woomera in 1954 to being selected in 2018 to deliver the next generation of advanced anti-submarine warships in Adelaide.
As we’ve developed and grown over the years, we’ve increased our contribution to the Australian economy. Today we contribute $1.2 billion to Australia’s GDP each year. This is driven by a direct contribution of $600 million from our activities, an indirect contribution of $230 million from our supply chain and a further $350 million as a result of our consumption activity.
