DEWC Systems to enhance ADF’s space capability
Minister for Defence, the Hon. Melissa Price MP, announced last Friday $14.6 million worth of new Defence Innovation Hub contracts. DEWC Systems was the only South Australian based company awarded a DIH contract in this round.
According to the Defence media released, DEWC Systems is expected to develop a sovereign, space-based tactical sensor system which, when successful will enhance ADF’s space capability.
DEWC Systems CEO Ian Spencer said that the DIH contract will do just that. It will fund Phase Two of the Miniaturised Orbital Electronic Sensor System (MOESS) to provide the ADF with a unique space-based EW capability that will ensure Australia maintains the technological superiority in our region. With the contract, DEWC Systems will finally be able to move on from the research phase (Phase One) to the design and development of assembled systems to demonstrate the technology.
