LAND 19 Short Range Ground Based Air Defence

Raytheon Australia in collaboration with Kongsberg will be responsible for delivering LAND 19 Phase 7 – a ground-based surface-to-air missile system with beyond-visual-range capability for the Australian Army.

Australia’s selection of the National Advanced Surface to Air Missile System (NASAMS) is expected to bring a transformational change to the Army’s existing force protection capability, including a progression from man-portable Ground Based Air Defence (GBAD) capability to a fully networked and distributed system.

The advancements provided by NASAMS will allow the Army to counter complex air threats beyond visual range and significantly increases protection coverage for Australian soldiers.

Advanced radars designed and manufactured by Canberra-based company CEA Technologies will be integrated with Australian designed and built vehicles – namely the Hawkei protected mobility vehicles.

Raytheon Australia’s newly-established Centre for Joint Integration in Adelaide will be used for the design, manufacture and assembly of some key elements of the NASAMS system, contributing to the creation of at least 100 Australian jobs across the life of the capability.
