SEA 129 Phase 5 Maritime Unmanned Aircraft System (MUAS) Continuous Development Program
The Australian Department of Defence’s SEA129 Phase 5 Project intends to acquire a new Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance and Targeting (ISR&T) capability for the Royal Australian Navy. The overall capability will enhance operational and tactical decision making by Commanders whilst on maritime operations.
Leidos Australia is seeking to maximise the opportunities available for competitive Australian Industry, particularly Small-to-Medium Enterprises (SME) and Indigenous Enterprises, to be considered for participation in our response for this Project. The primary capabilities that we are seeking support from Australian Industry are:
Payloads for Tier 1 UAVs
Payloads for Tier 2 UAVs
Antenna systems – multi-band directional tracking antenna systems suitable for UAV datalinks; motorised telescopic antenna masts capable of lifting payloads of 10 kg or greater
Marinisation solutions – treatments (chemical or otherwise) used to improve the survivability of electronic and mechatronic systems against sea-water intrusion
Emerging MUAS and Unmanned technologies - including, but not limited to, Payloads, Future Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance and Targeting effects, Data Analysis Systems, IR Reduction technology etc.
Leidos Australia is also seeking expressions of interest from Australian companies who are willing and able to supply Australian-manufactured Small Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) UAVs with a minimum endurance of 45 minutes. Recognising the rapid technological developments within this class of UAV, and the lead time before any potential procurement by the Commonwealth, we will continue to monitor the market and consider contemporary solutions for this capability should it be required under the Project.
If your company is interested in this opportunity, please complete the form below and a member of the Leidos team will be in contact.
Please note: Companies possessing capabilities aligned with those outlined above, and who submitted a capability statement with Leidos Australia under the LAND129 Phase 3 Tactical Unmanned Aerial System (TUAS) Project, do not need to re-register again for the SEA129 Phase 5 opportunity. Leidos Australia will review and give consideration to information provided under the LAND129 Phase 3 registration where the same or similar capabilities are required under the SEA129 Phase 5 Project. Companies can, however, reapply and provide additional information where a proposed offering has significantly changed or evolved since their original registration.
Where possible, we will list all specific projects or opportunities we have available at the top of this page. Additionally, we are interested in hearing from organisations who may wish to support the following six capability elements:
- Core Services
- Situational Awareness
- Personnel and Logistics
- Planning and Execution
- Intelligence and Targeting
- Communications and Digital Enablement
