XTEK awarded $1.9 m Defence contract for SUAS parts


Defence contractor XTEK has received a $1.9 million order to provide Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (SUAS) spare parts as part of its role as prime system integrator on the Land 129-4A project.

Scott Basham, XTEK’s CEO, said that, “These spare parts, which will be held in our state-of-the-art SUAS repair facility in Canberra, will be used to keep important operational UAV capabilities in the air for Defence.

He added that the contract continues support to defence over the last five years on LAND 129, “ providing high-end technical maintenance, support, and repairs to the SUAS fleet, as well as other important Defence equipment fleets such as EOD robots.”

XTEK develops a range of products, mostly for the defence market, including drone mapping software, as well as ballistic armour plating and helmets, made using its XTClave curing process.
