Invented by the Defence Science and Technology Group in South Australia, the high-frequency system is supported from the state by BAE Systems Australia. JORN’s command and control element, 1 Remote Sensor Unit, is also based at RAAF Base Edinburgh.
Over the next 10 years, BAE Systems will undertake significant upgrades to the JORN, with the $1.2 billion enhancement set to peak at more than 500 highly technical jobs, many of them in South Australia. The project will significantly redesign the JORN Radar capability in order to realise its full potential as a wide area surveillance capability.
