Anduril has announced plans to design, develop, manufacture, and market major product lines in Australia.

Anduril has established an independent entity, Anduril Australia, and has appointed David Goodrich as Executive Chairman and CEO of Anduril Australia, headquartered in Sydney.

“The ADF has long punched above its weight and been in the vanguard of regional security in the Indo-Pacific region, a role they will be asked to play more and more in the coming decades,” said Anduril CEO, Brian Schimpf. “Landmark treaties like AUKUS are signs that the century-long bond between the United States and Australia is only growing tighter and stronger. Australia has also embraced and deployed cutting-edge military technology — RAAF’s Loyal Wingman program is now one of the most impressive and innovative defence programs in the world. Add to all that a rich bed of Aussie STEM talent, and Australia is the perfect place for Anduril to grow.”

“Cutting-edge software and the ability to field a fully networked capability, is changing the battlespace. The old ways of operating exquisitely expensive but siloed capabilities simply won’t cut it in this new world,” said David Goodrich, CEO of Anduril Australia. “Now is the right time for the the ADF and the Australian Government to look at their technology development with fresh eyes. With an informed but disruptive approach and fresh thinking, Anduril is the ideal partner as the ADF embarks on this critical mission and I look forward to leading Anduril’s contribution to these efforts in Australia.”

Since its founding in 2017, Anduril now employs more than 950 people and is valued at over AUD$6.3 billion. Most recently, Anduril was selected for a US$1 billion contract with US Special Operations Command for counter-UAS technology.
