EM Solutions are the proud winners of a new Australian Global Defence Competitiveness Grant announced recently. These funding awards support the defence export capability of small and innovative Australian businesses to invest in projects that build export capability towards a stronger, more sustainable and globally competitive Australian defence industry. The grant to EM Solutions will enable improvements to its satellite test range, allowing over the air loop-back testing of its terminals in multiple frequency bands.
Electro Optic Systems Holdings Limited today announces that its wholly owned subsidiary, Brisbane-based EM Solutions has recently closed contracts to deliver its Cobra Maritime Satellite Terminals to four allied Navy end users in the EMEA region. These contracts, valued at approximately $14M, will be delivered through 2020 and 2021.
In addition to its strong existing order book with the Royal Australian Navy, these contracts result in a record backlog for the company, six months after being acquired by EOS.
Recent MiQ (Made In Queensland) grant secures future development of lean manufacturing capabilities and bolsters EM Solutions' competitive advantage globally.
Following a 2016 framework agreement signed between Thales and EM Solutions, we were fortunate to be recognised in 2018 as Thales Australia’s Supplier of the Year award for Export Achievement. More recently, we have been awarded a AUD$ 6.5M contract by global prime contractor Thales for the supply of satellite radio systems to support a major connectivity project.
EM Solutions’ products are deployed in a wide variety of places – land, sea, air and space. Each of these has application-specific compliance requirements governed by military, civilian, aeronautical and space standards and their certifying agencies. The requirements cover environmental testing such as temperature, humidity, vibration, shock, altitude, water ingress, salt fog, as well as sand and dust.
An exciting day for EM Solutions as we conclude negotiations for supply of the Cobra M3 X/Ka Triband Maritime Terminal for the SEA1180 OPV Program.
We are so proud that our products contribute towards improving staff morale onboard the HMAS Ballarat. A great example of how we contribute more than just a tactical advantage to the Royal Australian Navy.
We sent John Logan to the Thales Australia – Inaugural Industrial Partners and Suppliers Conference and Excellence Awards in Canberra and he came back with the Export Achievement Award!
