In partnership with a panel provider, Canberra-based company Allectum has been selected to provide the sustainment office capability for Distributed Ground Station – Australia.
Distributed Ground Station – Australia (DGS-AUS) is a first-of-type capability for intelligence fusion and dissemination of airborne-generated sensor data for the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF).
In servicing this capability, Allectum has employed a diverse range of veterans who will impart their years of service and knowledge of ADF ICT environments to support the RAAF's fifth generation platforms and key decision-makers.
Allectum, a veteran-owned and operated company, partnered with SME Gateway to win the contract to provide the sustainment office capability.
The sustainment office capability will enable the RAAF to balance the requirements of the existing capability while at the same time on board the new capability as delivered under project Air 3503.
Distributed Ground Station – Australia is responsible for the analysis of data collected from the various RAAF intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance aircraft. It also has access to national intelligence resources and using advanced computer systems, it can rapidly fuse collected information and provide decision-makers with enhanced situational awareness of events.
"This capability has created a number of jobs, 80 per cent of which are filled by veterans. A fantastic opportunity to support the community and to provide real capability to Defence," Jeremy Stredwick, co-owner and Director of Allectum said.
