The Australian Department of Defense released a request for tender to CEA Technologies for the development of a High Power Phased Array Radar concept demonstrator.

CEA Technologies Pty Ltd is a Canberra-based company whose CEAFAR radar is being fitted to the ANZAC Class Frigates of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) as part of the ANZAC Class Anti-Ship Missile Defense Upgrade project.

“This tender is for the development of radar systems based on the CEAFAR radar which could support future naval acquisitions such as the Royal Australian Navy’s Future Frigates through Project SEA 5000,” Minister for Defense Materiel Dr. Mike Kelly AM MP said.

“The initial part of this investment is anticipated to be in the order of $4 million dollars.”

The CEAFAR radar is a focus of the Phased Array Radar element of the High Frequency and Phased Array Radar Priority Industry Capability (PIC).

The development of a High Power Phased Array Radar based on the CEAFAR radar system will build on the already substantial investment made by the Australian Government in the domestic radar-related industrial research and development and de-risk radar solutions for the Future Frigates.
