EM Solutions has recently been contracted by Raytheon Australia to supply its Cobra X/Ka tri-band Maritime Terminals and associated network infrastructure to the Royal Australian Navy as part of the Sea 1654 program that will deliver two new supply vessels.
This order follows the successful deployment of the same Cobra platform on both Navy and Border Force Cape Class Vessels.
The project is being fulfilled from EM Solutions facility in Brisbane.
EM Solutions CEO, Rowan Gilmore said demand for the Cobra and other SATCOM-on-the-move solutions has been very high recently, however Sea 1654 is the first project for which the product are being supplied under full ASDEFCON conditions.
“This is a significant step forward for our business given the complexity and value of the solution we are supplying and the need to ensure we can support our Prime Contractor in delivering an exceptional outcome for the end user.”
Gilmore added a program of this nature enables the company to enhance its systems and processes for project delivery and future support and sustainment.
“The experience we will gain from working directly in this environment helps position our business for further future growth and we welcome the opportunity to deliver home grown capability to our end user and work hand in hand with our Prime.”
