LMA hopes that the consortium, which includes companies across Australian industry, will deliver a superior product for Defence’s sovereign military satellite communication (MILSATCOM) capability.

“From the beginning of this campaign, Lockheed Martin maximised Australia’s in-country space capabilities for JP 9102,” David Ball, regional director for space at Lockheed Martin Australia, said.

“The space industry here brings a vast, diverse network of capabilities, and we’re already seeing two-way transfers of skills, know-how and technology. Spearheaded by Lockheed Martin’s unparalleled heritage in resilient MILSATCOM, our JP 9102 team stands united and ready to deliver.”

According to a release from the company, the consortium has integrated Australian industry capability across the entire MILSATCOM capability spectrum – from software through to ground stations.

Linfox is expected to support warehouse provisioning and distribution for the bid, joining DXC, Conscia, Av-Comm, Calytrix Technologies, EM Solutions, Shoal Group, Clearbox Systems, STEM Punks and Ronson Gears.

In December, LMA confirmed that the company has teamed up with Leidos for the Commonwealth’s AIR 6500 project, which will see the firms jointly design, develop and build advanced secure technologies under the Royal Australian Air Force’s Joint Air Battle Management Systems Project (AIR 6500-1).

As part of the collaboration, LMA – which is one of two primes selected to participate in the final competitive phase of AIR 6500 Phase 1 Project – will work alongside Leidos Australia to develop capabilities that can be integrated into an open architecture framework, supporting application development for the project.

Specifically, the companies will investigate transformative software factory technologies, enhanced by a number of features, including secure coding, advanced cyber security infrastructure, automated monitoring, continuous deployment, network optimisation and testing.
