Head of Air Force Capability, Air Vice-Marshal Cath Roberts, AM, CSC, said the agreement builds upon the long history of close collaboration.

“The AMPEW Project Arrangement establishes a co-operative project to jointly design, develop, test, and demonstrate dynamic multi-platform electromagnetic manoeuvre warfare resource allocation management (EMW RAM) tools and decision aids,” said AVM Roberts.

“The primary objective is to decrease aircrew cognitive workload and automate command and control of manned and unmanned EW systems from stand-in to stand-off ranges.

“The Project Arrangement serves as the mechanism under which the United States Navy and Australia are executing the EMW RAM Coalition Warfare Program project and Future Naval Capability.

“This is a partnership between Naval Air Warfare Center, Weapons Division Office of Naval Research; Naval Air Systems Command; Royal Australian Air Force; Australia’s Defence Science and Technology Group; and industry for both the US and Australia.”

The AMPEW deal will also see Defence capabilities collaborating with partners in the US DoD to jointly undertake studies to identify future co-operative development opportunities directed towards increased airborne multi-platform EW capabilities.
