Victoria-based Tectonica Australia is the latest addition to the growing sovereign defence industry conglomerate, C4 EDGE.
Headquartered in West Melbourne, Tectonica Australia specialises in developing integrated systems for armoured vehicles, ground stations and soldiers in the areas of protected navigation, portable power and local situational awareness.
The company provides cutting-edge technology to meet future capability challenges faced by the Australian Department of Defence, the defence industry and government clients.
David Levy, managing director of Tectonica Australia, said, "The C4 EDGE program highlights the breadth and depth of Australia’s sovereign defence industry. Tectonica looks forwards to contributing its knowledge and experience in soldier systems to deliver the Australian Army a best of breed C4 capability."
C4 EDGE (Evolutionary Digital Ground Environment) is a defence industry cooperative of C4 subject matter experts leading a communications program scoping the demonstration of a sovereign land battlegroup and below communications environment for the Australian Army.
The C4 EDGE program will leverage internationally agreed open standards to grow and demonstrate Australian C4 (command control communications and computers) industry capacity and ability to deliver a battlegroup and below C4 capability demonstration.
Rachad Hussein, business development manager of Tectonica Australia, added, "The C4 EDGE program is a great initiative, which provides an opportunity to demonstrate the ability of the Australian defence industry to collaborate and deliver globally competitive products to the Australian Army."
Ultimately, by the end of 2021 the program will have delivered a proof of concept demonstration that shows the capability of Australian industry to further develop a protected, integrated and supportable sovereign system: one that delivers agile and resilient C2 functionality to meet the flexible, scalable and interoperability needs of a battlegroup operating independently or with partners.
Tectonica Australia joins Queensland partner EM Solutions, NSW partners GME and 3ME Technology, and ACT partners 1LM, Insitec, Kord Defence, Outlander Solutions, Penten, Skykraft, and XTEK.
