Av-Comm Joins Lockheed Martin to Deliver Military Satellite to Australia
Military communication Antennae

Satellite communications infrastructure and services provider Av-Comm has teamed up with Lockheed Martin Australia to support the delivery of a next generation, sovereign Military Satellite Communication (MILSATCOM) capability for the Australian Defence Force.

With experience spanning the Government, Defence, and Telecommunication sectors, Av-Comm will support the installation of high capacity wide-band antenna and radio-frequency subsystems at several satellite ground stations. This includes work overseeing design, implementation, integration, and testing.

The JP9102 teaming agreement builds on an already strong partnership. Av-Comm have been a longstanding supplier of space hardware to Lockheed Martin Australia and have provided technical support to existing operations at Lockheed Martin Australia’s Uralla, NSW ground station for many years.

Av-Comm joins a growing network of Australian service providers and SMEs that are supporting Lockheed Martin Australia to deliver best-of-breed sovereign solutions and supply chain opportunities for JP9102 and beyond.
