The Australian Army has confirmed that it is investigating options for the development of a counter-UAS and air surveillance capability to help protect warfighters from hostile drones. Australia has already deployed multiple AN/TPQ-49 radars for counterfire missions. These AN/TPQ-49 radars are capable of being upgraded with SRC’s LSTAR air surveillance software to provide drone air surveillance capabilities without the need to replace the radar hardware.

“This demonstration helped provide evidence to our Australian allies that they can perform these important missions without needing to replace hardware. It’s a cost-effective strategy that enhances capabilities of the Australian Defence Force,” said Paul G. Tremont, president and CEO of SRC. “We are proud to be supporting Australia with innovative technologies that help safeguard warfighters and defend important assets.”

SRC has multiple offices around the U.S. and Australia and is looking to fill more than 300 positions - particularly in domains of systems engineering, software engineering, integration/test, field application support and program management.
