SRC’s Australian subsidiary has been awarded a contract with the Defence’s Intelligence Group for the delivery of Intelligence Mission Data services.
Electronic warfare specialists SRC Aus confirmed that the company had been successfully awarded a four-year contact with the Department of Defence Intelligence Group for the delivery of Intelligence Mission Data services, valued at $47.9 million.
It is expected that the contract would help to ensure that Defence’s intelligence platforms maintain their situational awareness and survivability.
The contract includes IMD collation and production services delivered by the company to support the Australian Defence Force, as well as training services and the development of facilities to meet Defence’s data needs.
"This marks a continuation of the partnership between SRC and the Australian government and an important step in the expansion of Australia's sovereign mission data capability," Darren Robertson, vice-president of SRC Australia, said.
"It demonstrates a significant investment in Australian industry, and we look forward to working with our Defence partner to help ensure that our warfighters can complete their missions and return home safely."
The contract follows a previous IMD contract between SRC Aus and Defence in 2017, which leveraged SRC Aus’ US-based parent company's expertise to help build sovereign capabilities for the defence intelligence industry. The parent company has been operating for 40 years, across data mining, intelligence analysis, operational support and training as part of the Electronic Warfare Integrated Reprogramming Database.
