Thales launches Aus­tralian Mu­ni­tions

SP's MAI - - MILITARY -

Thales Aus­tralia has of­fi­cially launched Aus­tralian Mu­ni­tions – a busi­ness ded­i­cated to pro­vid­ing a wide range of mu­ni­tions that de­liver a bat­tle­field ad­van­tage to Aus­tralia’s warfight­ers. This will en­able bet­ter ac­cess to ca­pa­bil­i­ties, in­creased flex­i­bil­ity, and greater cost-ef­fec­tive­ness in meet­ing the cus­tomer’s mu­ni­tions re­quire­ments.

Aus­tralian Mu­ni­tions is part of Thales’s global net­work of ex­plo­sive ord­nance ex­per­tise, which in­cludes Thales Ad­vanced Weapon Sys­tems, Thales Mis­sile Elec­tron­ics, Jung­hans Mi­crotec, TDA Arme­ments and Forges de Zee­brugge (FZ).

It also com­prises a team of renowned strate­gic part­ners: US-based Gen­eral Dy­nam­ics Ord­nance and Tac­ti­cal Sys­tems, Nor­way’s Nammo and Winch­ester Aus­tralia.

This team rep­re­sents world-class or­gan- isa­tions com­mit­ted to de­liv­er­ing in­ter­na­tional qual­ity locally, adding sig­nif­i­cant depth to Aus­tralia’s do­mes­tic mu­ni­tions pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity. Aus­tralian Mu­ni­tions brings a broad prod­uct port­fo­lio en­com­pass­ing the ma­jor­ity of the Aus­tralian De­fence Force’s non-guided mu­ni­tions prod­uct re­quire­ments from small, medium and large cal­i­bre am­mu­ni­tion through to bombs, de­mo­li­tion stores and py­rotech­nics. Aus­tralian Mu­ni­tions will lower the cost of Aus­tralia’s ex­plo­sive ord­nance ca­pa­bil­ity, while con­tin­u­ing to de­liver world-lead­ing safety per­for­mance in Aus­tralia’s strate­gi­cally crit­i­cal ord­nance sites.

Thales Aus­tralia CEO Chris Jenk­ins said: “With this busi­ness we are build­ing the fu­ture of ex­plo­sive ord­nance man­u­fac­tur­ing in this coun­try. As a team we are ded­i­cated to en­sur­ing the Aus­tralian De­fence Force has the best mu­ni­tions the world has to of­fer, es­pe­cially when it comes to US and NATO in­ter­op­er­abil­ity.
