What We Do

From a dusty paddock in Woomera in 1953 to delivering the next generation of advanced anti-submarine warships in Adelaide – we’ve come a long way during our many years of operation in Australia

BAE Systems is Australia’s most versatile defence and security company. From air and maritime sustainment to shipbuilding, we have a long and proud heritage of providing advanced defence technology which protects both people and national security, keeping critical information and infrastructure secure.

Our strengths and core capabilities include providing the design, manufacture, upgrade and support services to the Australian Defence Force, cyber intelligence and commercial organisations across the country. We offer total capability in vital areas such as through-life support, security, logistics and systems integration.

Defence is striving for enhanced capability at lower cost. Today’s operating environment is also more complex and less predictable than ever.

Australia’s air force, navy and army are required to deploy at short notice virtually anywhere in the world, fully equipped and with a strong, sustainable supply chain. BAE Systems Australia is meeting these challenges — while searching for new ways to provide our customers with a competitive edge across the air, maritime, land and cyber domains.

We provide opportunities for graduates, work experience interns, apprentices and trainees to join our business and work on the latest technologies, capabilities and infrastructure that underpins Australia’s defence programs.

Recruiting new and emerging talent is critical for growing our future workforce. It also provides new and diverse perspectives, critical to ensuring that innovation flourishes.

Hunter Class Frigate Program

The Hunter class frigates are based on BAE Systems’ Type 26 Global Combat Ship design, currently being constructed in Glasgow, Scotland, for the United Kingdom’s Royal Navy.

The frigates are being modified to meet the Royal Australian Navy’s operational requirements. These modifications include incorporating the leading-edge Australian CEA phased-array radar, the Aegis combat management system and the integration of the Seahawk Romeo Maritime Combat Helicopter.

Each warship will be constructed on an acoustically quiet hull and feature unique sonar capabilities, modular digital design and open systems architecture to facilitate through-life support and upgrades as new technology develops.

The formidable fleet is being designed for maximum versatility and flexibility in operational roles, from humanitarian and disaster relief operations to high-intensity warfare.

The integrated mission bay and hangar is capable of supporting multiple helicopters, unmanned vehicles, boats, mission loads and disaster relief stores. A launcher can be provided for fixed-wing unmanned aerial vehicle operation, and the flight deck is capable of landing a Chinook helicopter to transport land forces.

Commitment to support and develop Indigenous-owned businesses

Hunter is committed to supporting and developing 15 Indigenous-owned businesses over the life of the program.

Already the program has worked with a number of Indigenous-owned businesses, including Supply Nation, the Indigenous Defence and Infrastructure Consortium, TQCSI-Yaran, Murra Services (through their work with MG Engineering) and Career Centre Alliance.


Jindalee Operational Radar Network (JORN)

The Jindalee Operational Radar Network (JORN) is a connected series of three remote over-the-horizon radars located in Queensland, the Northern Territory and Western Australia.

The state-of-the-art defence system provides wide-area surveillance at ranges of 1,000 to 3,000 kilometres and plays a vital role in supporting the Australian Defence Force’s air and maritime operations, border protection, disaster relief and rescue operations.

JORN works by refracting high-frequency electromagnetic waves off the ionosphere to ‘see’ objects thousands of kilometres away that are invisible to conventional radars because of the curvature of the earth.

JORN is controlled and operated by the Royal Australian Air Force from the Battlespace Surveillance Centre at its Edinburgh base in South Australia.

Nulka Active Missile Decoy

  • One of our key products, the Nulka, is currently deployed on over 150 Australian, US and Canadian warships and is Australia’s largest regular defence export for the Commonwealth.
  • Nulka is an aboriginal word for ‘be quick”
  • The Nulka is an active missile decoy that protects surface ships against anti-ship missiles. Fully autonomous after launch, the unique flight vehicle design allows the decoy’s flight-path to be maintained with a high degree of precision over a wide range of environmental conditions, resulting in extremely high levels of mission effectiveness against modern anti-ship missiles.
  • Accurate control of the flight vehicle allows for optimal positioning of the decoy, independent of ship manoeuvre, and minimises the likelihood of collateral damage to friendly forces.
  • The hovering technology was developed in the 1970’s by DSTO in Australia.
  • BAE is the prime contractor and system design agent and manufactures the flight control hardware at Edinburgh Parks (SA), and the assembly and tests of the completed Nulka Round is performed at the Nulka Round Assembly Facility in Mulwala (NSW).

F-35 Lightning II Fighter Jet Program

  • The F-35 is a stealthy, multi-role attack aircraft capable of operating from land and sea to nations across the globe, and is the world’s largest defence program.
  • As a key partner, we hold a 13-15% workshare of each aircraft.
  • Our Edinburgh Parks facility houses the only titanium milling machine of it’s type in the southern hemisphere. The titanium rods for the tail of the F-35 are milled on site at Edinburgh Parks, each one taking up to 48 hours of precision milling ready for assembly in the UK.
  •  From its location at RAAF Base Wagga, NSW, BAE Systems delivers ADF Aviation Technical Training (ATT) to aircraft technicians. Our high quality facility provides students with access to aircraft and state of the art simulators, and is recognised for delivering technicians of an exceptionally high standard.
  • The Lead-In Fighter is a flight training aircraft that transitions pilots into flying fast jets, and this is based in Williamtown NSW and Pearce in WA.

Hawk Lead-In Fighter Training System

The Hawk Lead-In Fighter provides state-of-the-art fast jet training capability using advanced simulation technology to create a ‘flying classroom’ for Australia’s future fast jet aircrew.

The Hawk Lead-In Fighter is the world’s most successful advanced military jet trainer aircraft built on more than 35 years of fast jet training experience. More than 1,000 aircraft have operated across 18 countries, preparing more than 20,000 pilots for life in a fast-jet cockpit.

 The Hawk Mark 127 Lead-In Fighter is a tandem, two-seater jet aircraft. Australia currently has 33 aircraft that have all been enhanced to ensure they remain cutting edge and future ready.

Using advanced airborne simulation technology, the Hawk is a ‘flying classroom.’ It prepares student pilots to master the controls of combat aircraft and trains the RAAF’s fast jet aircrew for operational conversion to the F/A-18 Super Hornet, EA-18G Growler and the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. Hawk Lead-In Fighter Training System graduates regularly achieve 100% pass rates in their fighter operational conversion courses.

Red Ochre LABS

Red Ochre Labs, our hub for disruptive technology and early product development, also presents significant opportunity for further research and development into keeping JORN at the forefront of high frequency technology and ensuring the continued development of this critical sovereign capability.

Having the ability to do some of that research and development alongside key defence, industry and academic partners will keep JORN, and our technology more broadly, at the cutting edge and delivering for our defence force.

Red Ochre LABS links to research and development projects across BAE Systems’ 40 + Australian sites; therefore, opportunities are available nationally. At the heart of Red Ochre Labs will be Australian air, land and sea and cyber technologies focused on:

  • Autonomous systems
  • Hypersonics
  • High-Frequency Systems
  • Electronic warfare
  • Anti-submarine warfare capabilities through the Hunter Class Frigate program.

Autonomy – STRIX Uncrewed Aerial System

A hybrid, tandem wing, multi-domain and multi-role UAS capability, STRIX™ could be used for a variety of missions including air to ground strike against hostile targets and persistent intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR). It could also act as a ‘loyal wingman’ for military helicopters.

Designed to carry up to a 160kg payload over 800km, STRIX™ will be capable of operating in high-risk environments. With a collapsed footprint of 2.6m x 4.5m, it could be easily transported in a standard shipping container. Its VTOL capability means STRIX™ could be used without relying on an airfield. It could also be operated from a helicopter to expand the mission set and protect aircrew in high-threat environments.

We have an extensive history of developing autonomous systems globally, including the Taranis and Mantis uncrewed autonomous demonstrator aircraft. The STRIX™ VMS already guides platforms, including the M113 for the Australian Army’s autonomous systems program and MQ-28 Ghost Bat drone for the Royal Australian Air Force’s autonomy program.

We are continuously exploring how we can support the challenges customers face in both the near term and future battlespace.  Alongside core defence programs, we are developing a range of autonomous systems and future concepts.

As well as working with Innovaero on STRIX in Australia, we are also working with SMEs such as Malloy on the T-650 eVTOL heavy lift vehicle in the UK, which will enable customers to carry out a number of different roles including air surveillance / ISTAR, anti-submarine warfare and air to ground strike to provide greater protection for forces on the ground.

Women in STEM

With technology and science becoming one of the most important skills for economic growth, Australian girls and women are still significantly underrepresented in STEM education and careers.

No one understands this better than BAE Systems CEO Gabby Costigan, who a leading example of how women can excel in STEM careers.

Gabby’s grew up wanting to fly helicopters for the Defence Force, however at that time female pilots were not permitted, so instead, she decided to fix them. Gabby completed an engineering degree and worked for the ADF across design, systems and project engineering.

After more than 20 years in the Army Gabby was able to transfer her skills into a civilian career and today she leads the biggest Defence Company in Australia, delivering skills and capability to our customer, the Australian Defence Force.

BAE Systems supports women in STEM by sponsorship events such as the Women in Aviation Awards and Women in Industry Awards etc. We are currently exploring opportunities for further education for females wishing to pursue a career in STEM.

ATSI at BAE Systems

As Australia’s largest Defence Company we must take the lead in ensuring gender diversity, inclusion and reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders peoples and flexible work practices.

We do this through our Diversity & Inclusion strategy and Reconciliation Action Plan, as well as by partnering with external organisations and encouraging our employees to get involved in activities that foster a greater understanding and awareness of the importance of diversity and inclusion.

One of the key areas we really need to focus more in is recruiting and retaining the pipeline of talented people from diverse backgrounds.
