Schiebel Pacific and Raytheon Australia have teamed up for the Land 129 Phase 3 Tactical Unmanned Aerial System (TUAS) project for the Australian Army.
The tender response was submitted last week.
The teaming couples Schiebel’s Camcopter S-100 UAS with Raytheon Australia as a prime systems integrator across multiple domains.
RAN operates several Schiebel systems at 822X Squadron, Nowra.
“We are very confident that the capability of the S-100, together with the proposed integration into existing ADF systems, is the best solution for the Australian Army," Fabian Knechtl, Managing Director of Schiebel Pacific, said. "Additionally, Raytheon Australia’s pedigree and experience in sovereign complex systems integration makes them the perfect partner and our teaming will assure efficient and timely delivery to the ADF."
"We are fully committed to the Australian Government’s policy on Australian Industry Capability (AIC) and have already started the ‘transfer of knowledge’ to our local entity and our partners."
