Clearbox Systems has been selected to design and develop software to perform as the Baseband Network Control Element. The software controls complex baseband switching and routing devices deployed across the United States to provide centralised operation and control.
The first phase of the project has been successfully completed with the delivered software passing testing and deployed into operation. A second phase is in progress for delivery in the coming months.
Clearbox Systems enjoyed a hugely successful Avalon Airshow 2019 including a combination of key announcements, speaking engagements, forging of partnerships, and VIP interactions and demonstration.
The week began with Executive Director, Jeremy Hallett, appearing as a panellist at the Australian Space Industry Conference that was held alongside the Avalon Airshow.
The panel explored the question “Where will the growth come from – Australian Small-to-Medium Enterprises”. One key conclusion of the panel that the Australian market is not big enough and that growth will come from export and leveraging the international engagements of the Australian Space Agency. Another theme was that for SMEs growth cannot come by going it alone and that collaboration and partnerships will lead to more opportunities.
The bulk of Clearbox Systems’ participation was alongside the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) showcasing developments from the Jericho Dawn 17/4 networked sensor integration trials. Technology Development Manager, Tim Spitzer, was kept busy explaining our contribution to expanding the technical interoperability across suites of sensors for distributed intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and electronic warfare (ISREW).
As previously reported, Clearbox Systems has been selected for the Lockheed Martin Mentor-Protégé program where we will receive support and guidance to enhance access opportunities into the global supply chain and sustainable business growth.
The Mentor-Protégé relationship is based on a highly successful US program where Lockheed Martin will act as a Mentor to Clearbox Systems to provide dedicated assistance and market advice to open opportunities for technology transfer, innovation and local skilled jobs.
We were fortunate to have the opportunity to have a number of VIP engagements which provided an opportunity to explain the broader Clearbox Systems focus as well as demonstrate the system on display at the Airshow.
Clearbox Systems to receive support and guidance to enhance Clearbox System’s access opportunities into the global supply chain and sustainable business growth.
Clearbox Systems has been selected to enter into a relationship with Lockheed Martin Australia to receive assistance to successfully compete for future prime and subcontractor contracts in both local and global supply chains.
The Mentor-Protégé relationship, being overseen by Lockheed Martin Australia’s Office of Australian Industrial Participation, is based on a highly successful US program where Lockheed Martin will act as a Mentor to Clearbox Systems to provide dedicated assistance and market advice to open opportunities for technology transfer, innovation and local skilled jobs.
The Mentor-Protégé program will see Lockheed Martin provide subject matter expertise and mentoring to Clearbox Systems in areas such as Competitive Intelligence, Ethics, Human Resources and Workforce Planning, Cyber Security and Product Management. Upon graduation, Clearbox Systems will have undertaken world-class and contemporary training that will provide them the foundations for taking their company even further on the global stage.
Clearbox Systems is a leading Australian player in the field of secure communications. Clearbox Systems was selected after engaging with Lockheed Martin Australia during industry briefings held to inform small to medium enterprises (SMEs) about partnership opportunities on the development of future joint battle management capabilities for the Australian Defence Force.
Chief Executive of Lockheed Martin Australia and New Zealand, Vince Di Pietro, said the relationship, a first for Australia, is at the heart of Lockheed Martin’s enduring commitment and Australian presence as an industry partner and sovereign capability enabler.
“At Lockheed Martin Australia, we work with like-minded industry partners, such as Clearbox Systems, to provide meaningful guidance and support to raise the technology base in Australia and to help develop these businesses to grow sovereign capability to ensure our Australia defence capability remains at the cutting edge.” he said.
“Our approach is to work with Australian industry, small to large, to discover and evolve the best of breed technology and to build that capability for Australia and global customers. By partnering with them we provide the opportunity to showcase their technology on the world stage and with it the potential to access global supply chains. Strong partners are vital to our mutual success and this program is a global exemplar of the benefits of partner development.”
“Clearbox Systems was an obvious choice for the partnership having displayed entrepreneurial leadership who have been keen to collaborate, and keener still to strengthen their business and value proposition as well as being export-ready.”
Executive Director of Clearbox Systems, Jeremy Hallett said it is a privilege to be selected as the first Australian company to have this unique relationship with Lockheed Martin Australia.
“Receiving mentoring and training from the world’s largest Defence company means we will be better placed to continue to deliver sovereign capability to the Australian Defence Force. We also believe this will be an opportunity for us to become more competitive on the world stage positioning us for more export opportunities,” said Mr Hallett.
“The establishment of this program is an exciting development for the wider Australian Defence Industry too. It is great to see Lockheed Martin be proactive in helping mature local Australian businesses.”
Headquartered in Canberra, Lockheed Martin Australia is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin Corporation. The company employs more than 1,000 people in Australia working on a wide range of major programs spanning the aerospace, defence and civil sectors.
