The United States Navy has awarded Chemring $107.5 million contract to supply countermeasure flares for Australian, US and international F-35 operators.

The Geelong-based firm manufactures and supplies air-launched countermeasures against advanced electronic systems.

“This contract represents the culmination of a multi-year joint effort between the US Government, the Australian Government, and Chemring Group to qualify Chemring Australia to produce countermeasures for the global F-35 fleet,” Australian Minister for Defence Linda Reynolds said.
