Division overview: C5ISR

Future battles will be fought across multiple domains simultaneously; they will be driven by data derived from sensors on crewed and un-crewed platforms operating in all domains; decision involving many variables will need to be made in milliseconds, to deliver integrated effects.

Combined, our pedigree, domain knowledge and investment in C2 systems, C4I networks, CEMA and ISR, uniquely places us to solve our customer’s multi-domain integration problems:

  • Pervasive, full spectrum, multi-domain Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR);
  • Multi-Domain Command & Control, Communications and Computers (C4);
  • Secure and sustain advantage in the sub-threshold;
  • Asymmetric hard power;
  • Freedom of Access and Manoeuvre (FOAM).
