Australian companies hoping to participate in the government’s $2 billion Short Range Ground Based Air Defence project have been given more time, with Raytheon and Defence extending the registration date.

Minister for Defence Industry Christopher Pyne launched Raytheon Australia’s LAND 19 Phase 7B Supplier Portal in September, in a bid to get more Australian companies involved with the project.

The system will provide ground-based air defence against fixed wing aircraft, helicopters, cruise missiles and unmanned aerial systems.

The project will deliver the Army’s future SRGBAD capability based on the proven National Advanced Surface to Air Missile System (NASAMS), which is fielded in seven nations, including the US. 

Raytheon Australia's managing director Michael Ward said the portal will give Australians suppliers access to Raytheon's global supply chain.

"By registering on the supplier portal, Australian suppliers have the opportunity to showcase the breadth and depth of Australian industry capability, create local jobs and join more than 1,500 suppliers that already help Raytheon Australia deliver complex projects to Defence," Ward said.

"Through access to our global supply chain, Raytheon Australia has already helped local suppliers win over $330 million of work under contracts related to Raytheon Company activities. These opportunities benefit the sustainment and growth of Australia’s home-grown defence industry.

"Raytheon Australia’s solution has a strong focus on identifying opportunities for Australian industry to participate in the project and to enhance local industry capability.

"In addition to investigating the use of Australian protected vehicles and sensor technology, the system will provide opportunities for Australian industry across systems integration, component manufacture, assembly and test, as well as in-country sustainment."

Defence and Raytheon are currently investigating mounting missile launchers on Thales’ Australian-made Hawkei vehicles and using Canberra-based CEA Technologies’ radar.

Following the receipt of registrations and in partnership with Defence, Raytheon Australia will conduct a series of Australia Industry Showcases in every state and territory. The dates for the showcase events will be announced soon.

Businesses can access the portal here.
