CEA Technologies and the Defence Science and Technology (DST) Group have signed a five-year research and development agreement to develop new solutions for Defence’s future requirements in radar, communications and electronic warfare.

The agreement includes collaboration with a significant focus on robust and resilient capabilities in complex environments. CEA Technologies already produces world-leading fourth generation active phased array radar technology, in use on Australia's Anzac Class frigates and mandated for the Future Frigates, and this partnership is expected to contribute to its development of a next-generation radar.

Defence Industry Minister Christopher Pyne said the developments under the program will go towards future acquisition projects across the aerospace, maritime and land domains.

"I welcome this great partnership which brings together our Defence scientists’ signal processing, electronic protection, tracking and data fusion capabilities with CEA Technologies’ active array and radar expertise," Minister Pyne said.

"DST Group and CEA Technologies will bring complementary strengths to the collaboration on advances in array capabilities.

"I congratulate the company and Defence on this strategic partnership, which endeavours to produce more game-changing capabilities for the Australian Defence Force."

The research agreement was signed in Canberra by the Chief Defence Scientist Dr Alex Zelinsky and Merv Davis, chief executive of CEA Technologies.
