“This is an exciting opportunity for Team Redback and a recognition of world-class Australian turret and weapon station technology,” Dr Ben Greene, CEO of EOS, said.

“EOS and our Australian supplier base of over 70 SMEs welcome the prospect of providing world-leading technology for this vital Australian Army program.”

Team Redback was one of two teams selected to proceed onto the next stage of the tender, risk mitigation activity (RMA).

“This selection provides an opportunity to show under a rigorous evaluation process the quality, performance and capability that the Australian defence industry can offer. Although over 90 per cent of EOS revenue is consistently derived from exports, meeting ADF needs is of utmost importance to our company,” Dr Greene said.

In the RMA stage, shortlisted vehicles will undergo rigorous testing and evaluation and shortlisted tenderers will conduct Australian industry showcase workshops throughout Australia, which will conclude in 2021 with the submission of best and final offers and final evaluation, with a full contract award expected in 2022.
