Australian-owned SYPAQ Systems submits sovereign UAS capability for LAND 129 Phase 4B

Australian and veteran-owned SYPAQ Systems has submitted its sovereign UAS solution for LAND 129 Phase 4B, designed to deliver ISR support to the Australian Army.

Australian and veteran-owned SYPAQ Systems has submitted its sovereign UAS solution for LAND 129 Phase 4B, designed to deliver ISR support to the Australian Army.

Dubbed the CorvoX, the system was designed to deliver intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) support to military commanders and provide “over the hill, down the road and around the corner situational awareness”.

To achieve this, the company explains that the CorvoX solution utilises vertical take-off, hover and landing.

“CorvoX will provide crucial operational advantages that will contribute to the enhanced safety and effectiveness of Army personnel, including rapid set-up and almost instant loitering and surveillance capability,” chief executive of SYPAQ Systems Amanda Holt said.

“As a wholly Australian, veteran-owned business, we are proud to offer this sovereign solution to Army with over 90 per cent Australian industry content.”

Michael Partridge, general manager innovation and strategic programs at SYPAQ, explained that the CorvoX solution grew from widespread consultation with Defence and local companies to create a tailor made solution that addressed AIC requirements.

“CorvoX is the result of a four-year innovation journey responding to the requirements identified by Army and the Defence Innovation Hub Special Notice,” Partridge said.

“The system is proof of the world-leading autonomous systems capabilities in Australian industry, which we have seen right across our local supply chain.”

Throughout the development of the product, SYPAQ collaborated closely with the Victorian government’s Defence Autonomy Centre of Excellence (DACE), which provided investment into the company’s research and development and manufacturing capabilities.

According to Holt, this allowed the company to “continue developing our innovative technologies and intellectual property related to autonomous systems, sensor systems, military systems integration, artificial intelligence and cyber security”.
