Real Work for Australian SMEs

Real Work for Australian SMEs

In order to deliver a sovereign Australian Industry Capability, Raytheon Australia has engaged with 10 Australian Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to work alongside our own Australian workforce of highly skilled systems engineers and program managers.

This team will assemble, integrate, deliver and sustain the Australian Defence Force's new tactical Unmanned Aerial System vehicle, and support system as a sovereign capability.

Should Raytheon Australia’s solution be successful, there will be future opportunities for more Australian SMEs, in turn enabling more Australian jobs.
