Partnership to boost electronic warfare capabilities in SA

South Australian company DEWC Systems is one step closer to developing sovereign electronic warfare capability for Defence, after joining forces with local company REDARC Defence Systems.

Under the multi-million dollar agreement, REDARC will support DEWC by designing and manufacturing capabilities to further enhance and complement DEWC’s growing portfolio of state-of-the-art electronic warfare solutions.

Established in 2018, DEWC Systems has already developed a strong reputation for innovation, and as the first Australian company to launch a payload on a space capable rocket from Australian soil, helped lead Australia into the Space 4.0 era.

Earlier this week, the company announced a strategic partnership with Defence Science and Technology Group to jointly develop advanced infrared camera capability for defence applications.

DEWC Systems CEO Ian Spencer said the combined strengths of REDARC and DEWC will enable the company to deliver the latest sovereign electronic warfare systems for Defence.

“We have developed several products with applications ranging across a number of industries and with the capabilities of REDARC to support us, DEWC Systems will soon be able to deliver the highest quality products manufactured locally,” he said.

“With the appointment of Anthony Kittel to the DEWC Systems board, the future looks very promising for us and the Australian Defence Industry.”

REDARC Electronics CEO and Managing Director Anthony Kittel said the partnership demonstrates a strong commitment to providing the best capabilities to defence customers in Australia and overseas.

“Through collaboratively working under a longer term partnership we can ensure the strengths of DEWC Systems’ product design can be supported through REDARC’s ability to take products through to manufacture and ongoing sustainment globally,” he said.
