Joint Battlespace Systems
Raytheon Australia’s Joint Battlespace Systems business is focused on the delivery of advanced combat-enabling technologies and force protection and strike solutions for the joint battlespace. Through integrated weapons systems to ensure mission success on land, at sea and in the air, we are ready to deliver the capability to defend the nation.
MAINTAINING AUSTRALIA’S DEFENCE TECHNOLOGY EDGE
Woomera Test Range
The Woomera Test Range, located in South Australia, is the world’s largest overland test environment, comparable to the size of England, and is one of Australia’s most critical national security assets. Raytheon Australia’s integrated range solution provides the Australian Defence Force (ADF) with one of the most advanced test, experiment and training environments in the world.
Raytheon Australia has met the ADF’s increasing demand for advanced electronic warfare testing and training capabilities with the establishment of the Joint Adversarial Training and Testing Systems (JATTS) program. JATTS combines operational training against live aerial opposing forces, airborne EW, and aerial targets; capabilities previously delivered through three separate contracts. By merging these capabilities, the JATTS program can respond to ADF future force requirements in an agile and flexible manner.
Raytheon Australia is also responsible for operation of the ground-based Mobile Threat Training Emitter System (MTTES), composed of a Battle Management System and number of mobile emitters, targetable and non-targetable communications.
Air Combat Training Services Support
Raytheon Australia and our industry partners provide innovative leading-edge training services to the Royal Australian Air Force under the Air Combat Training Services Support contract.
Our team of engineers, technicians and teamed instructors prepare future air force pilots at RAAF Bases Amberley, Williamtown and Tindal, with live elements of EW training provided in the Western Training Area, QLD and Delamere Air Weapons Range, NT.
TRANSFORMING AUSTRALIA’S INTEGRATED AIR AND MISSILE DEFENCE CAPABILITY
Raytheon Australia is working with Raytheon Technologies and KONGSBERG Defence & Aerospace to develop Australia’s new Short-Range Ground-Based Air Defence capability to replace the ADF’s existing capability, which is nearing the end of its life-cycle.
Raytheon Australia will provide the Australian Army with an integrated ground-based surface-to-air defence system, utilising a range of effectors and incorporating a beyond-visual-range capability that will provide the capability to engage multiple threat types. This project, LAND 19 Phase 7B, represents the inner-tier of the land-based Integrated Air and Missile Defence capability—a further step towards delivering a truly integrated joint battlespace for the ADF.
