Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull made a commitment of $200 million to upgrade Nulka active missile decoy systems on existing ships.
Nulka system would help defend Australia from the threat of anti-ship missiles that can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft and land, Turnbull said.
The 20 year program will include a new launch system and supporting technology to enhance Nulka’s effectiveness and will ensure that it continues protecting Australian and allied fleets well into the future, BAE Systems said in a statement Friday.
It will also include installation of new launch systems on the Anzac frigates which are being upgraded at Henderson as part of the AUD $2 billion, six-year Anzac Midlife Capability Assurance Program, the company said.
BAE Systems is responsible for the design, development and integration of the Nulka anti-ship missile defense system on Royal Australian Navy ships.
Nulka uses technology developed in Australia which has earned more than $1 billion in exports.
BAE Systems’ Australian supply chain will contribute more than 75 percent of the engineering support and components to the Nulka launch system.
BAE Systems Australia has selected local partner, Milspec Manufacturing to offer a Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle (CRV) for Australian Army's largest ever vehicle replacement program, dubbed LAND 400 Phase 2 to replace the General Dynamics Land Systems (8x8) ASLAV. BAE Systems is offering Patria's AMV35 Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle that will be fitted with a Hagglunds CV9035 35 mm two-person turret
