Lockheed Martin Australia has been announced as the strategic partner for AIR 6500 Phase 1 by the Australian Department of Defence.
The American aerospace prime will provide the Australian Defence Force with a Joint Air Battle Management System at the core of the ADF’s future Integrated Air and Missile Defence capability.
The management system is expected to provide improved situational awareness and coordinated defence against air and missile threats, as well as interoperability with the United States and allied partners.
The federal government has committed $765 million to deliver the Joint Air Battle Management System as a second tranche of what is expected to be a multibillion-dollar program.
