Leonardo Opens New Site In Western Australia To Support Development of Anzac-class Ships

Leonardo established a new site in Western Australia through its subsidiary Selex ES Australia Pty Ltd, which will be the regional hub for engineering, integration, installation and life support, to delivery defense contracts with local firms.

The new site will play a key role in Leonardo's delivery as prime system integrator of the SEA1442 phase 4 solution. Under the programme, Leonardo will provide an integrated suite of state-of-the-art communications capabilities for the upgrade and modernisation of Australia's ANZAC frigates. The solution includes enhanced external RF communications and internal communications equipment, the provision of a high-data-rate-line-of-sight bearer and the introduction of a modern communications management system. The capability upgrade will lay the foundation for a maritime architecture critical to future tactical communications for the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). It will also contribute towards the Australian Defence Force’s network-centric warfare concept in the maritime environment, helping reach the goal of a truly networked RAN.

Further expansion is planned over the forthcoming 18 months. The new opening was announced at Pacific 2017, an international maritime exposition taking place in Sydney, Australia.
