The United Kingdom is to look at the feasibility of procuring a radar system developed by Australian company CEA Technologies, Australian Minister for Defence Industry Christopher Pyne said on 10 November.
In a press release published by the Australian Department of Defence (DoD), Pyne said the United Kingdom will undertake a capability study to integrate CEA Technologies’ CEAFAR active phased-array radar onto UK Royal Navy ships. The study of the radar system will commence in early 2018.
Pyne added that the capability study was agreed at the Australia/UK defence industry dialogue, which took place in the United Kingdom last week, and was confirmed by UK minister for defence procurement Harriett Baldwin during a visit on 10 November to Adelaide.
