Australia signs EW agreement with US

Defence has signed a six-year agreement with the US Department of Defense to collaborate on the joint design, development, testing and demonstration of dynamic multi-platform electromagnetic manoeuvre warfare resource allocation management (EMW RAM) tools and decision aids.

Under the Airborne Multi-Platform Electronic Warfare (AMPEW) Agreement, Australia and the US aim to develop technologies for the deployment of co-operative manned and unmanned electromagnetic operations in the air domain.


The partnership is between the US Naval Air Warfare Centre, Weapons Division Office of Naval Research, Naval Air Systems Command; the RAAF DST Group and both Australian and US industry.


“The primary aim is to decrease aircrew cognitive workload and automate Command and Control on manned and unmanned EW systems from stand-in to stand-off ranges,” Head Air Force Capability, Air Vice Marshal Cath Roberts said.


“The Project Arrangement serves as the mechanism under which the US Navy and Australia are executing the EMW RAM Coalition Warfare Program project and future Naval capability.”


The work will build on work previously carried out by DST and the US Navy in sensor development on airborne platforms such as the F/A-18A/B Classic Hornet, F/A-18F Super Hornet and EA-18G Growler. It aims to pursue technological solutions which may in the future be deployed on manned airborne platforms such as the Super Hornet and Growler, P-8A Poseidon and MH-60R Seahawk naval combat helicopter, but also potentially on future unmanned platforms and C2 systems.


“The parties will jointly undertake studies to identify future co-operative development opportunities directed towards increased airborne multi-platform EW capabilities,” AVM Roberts said.

Four Australian F-111s flying towards Nellis Air Force Base after a refueling exercise during Red Flag 2006. Such a beautiful plane it was even Australia's strategic bomber that gave the airforce its own independant strike capabilities even its payload was enormous. But the General Dynamics F-111 was expensive to maintain also complicated along with being pretty thirsty. Sad thing is it got retired to make way for more F35s. I hope they are being kept in storage when Australia needs them.
