The agreement will support DEWC Systems to design and manufacture capabilities to further enhance and complement their growing defence portfolio.
“DEWC Systems is excited to partner with REDARC,” Ian Spencer, CEO of DEWC Systems said. “The combined strengths of REDARC and DEWC Systems will be able to deliver the latest sovereign electronic warfare systems for Defence.”
DEWC Systems, established in 2018, 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.
“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.
“With the appointment of Anthony Kittel to the DEWC Systems board, the future looks very promising for us and the Australian Defence Industry,” Mr Spencer added.
Anthony Kittel, REDARC Electronics CEO and Managing Director, said, “As two Australian SME defence companies, the decision to partner in such a way demonstrates our commitment to providing the best capabilities to our 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,” Mr Kittel said.
