Satellite communications infrastructure and services provider Av-Comm will join Lockheed Martin Australia’s (LMA) 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, Sydney-based Av-Comm will support the installation of high capacity wide-band antenna and radio-frequency subsystems at satellite ground stations.
This includes work overseeing design, implementation, integration, and testing.
The partnership builds on an already strong relationship between Lockheed Martin and Av-Comm, which is a longstanding supplier of space hardware to LMA’s Uralla, NSW ground station.
LMA space regional director David Ball said: “Av-Comm will help us deliver an operationally superior MILSATCOM solution…and enhance the trust, reliability and collaboration that our team represents.”
“We are committed to strengthening Australia’s sovereign defence and space industry capability with a resilient MILSATCOM system that meets Australia’s strategic needs.”
Av-Comm joins a growing network of Australian service providers and SMEs, including Shoal Group, Clearbox Systems and Ronson Gears, that are supporting Lockheed Martin Australia to deliver the JP9102 project.
LMA’s JP9102 solution delivers unparalleled coverage, capacity and resilience to meet Defence’s unique strategic and capability requirements for satellite communications.
