American engineering firm KBR has partnered with Adelaide-based DEWC Services (DEWC) spectrum security technology in support of the Australian Defence Force (ADF).
Under the agreement, Adelaide-based KBR Australia and DEWC will share skills and experiences to develop novel solutions to meet some of the evolving electronic spectrum challenges currently faced by the ADF.
“We are very keen to get ahead of the curve in meeting the nation’s defence and security ambitions and we see enormous potential in our two companies working together,” said Nic Maan, KBR Australia’s Vice President of Government Solutions APAC.
“KBR will leverage our history in space and spectrum management, protection and assurance from the US to transfer knowledge and capabilities to our Australian business in collaboration with DEWC.”
KBR’s global enterprise has leading edge space and related capabilities including satellite, ground systems, space communications, and mission operations support across NASA and the US Department of Defense.
DEWC is a specialist Command Control, Communications and Computing, Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance and Electronic Warfare (C4ISREW) business that supports the Department of Defence and related organisations in the areas of capability development, R&D and operational support.
Alan Dundas, CEO DEWC said: “DEWC is committed to supporting Defence via a range of mission-critical activities within C4ISREW. Working together, I believe that both DEWC and KBR can build upon our shared experience, helping increase mission success and ensure our warfighters can operate safely and effectively.”
