Elbit Systems said the official designation of its new facility as a C4I Development Centre demonstrates its growing technological development capability in Australia.
In officially opening the new facility, the chairman of the Elbit Systems of Australia board, Haim Delmar, said that this was another demonstration of the parent company’s commitment to Australia.
“I’m really proud to see what we’ve achieved and the growth and commitment it demonstrates," Delmar said.
"It shows the strength and level of trust we place in our strategic partnership with the Australian Defence Force. It is something that we value enormously.”
The new centre in Port Melbourne will be home to more than 100 engineers working on C4i technologies.
Country-wide, Elbit Systems of Australia now employs over 260 people, with major sites in Brisbane and Melbourne and representation in Canberra and Darwin, as well as a number of Commonwealth Training establishments.
