CEA hooks up with Northrop Grumman

By johnboy - 26 May 2013 7

UPI has the happy news that Canberra’s radar boffins CEA Technologies have entered the supply chain of global merchants of death Northrop Grumman:

The U.S. company said the companies selected under the Australian Defense and Materiel Organization’s Global Supply Chain Program are Electro Optic Systems, CEA Technologies and Insitec.

Those companies, with expertise in aerospace hardware and software, will supply a variety of products and services for Northrop programs.

“Northrop Grumman’s commitment to Australia is underscored by genuine and direct investment in the Australian economy,” said David Perry, vice president and chief global business development officer, Northrop Grumman.

“EOS, CEA Technologies and Insitec represent Australia’s vibrant defense industry and are key additions to our Australian industry team.

“Each of these relationships strengthens our ability to deliver products and services critical to maintaining the national security of the United States, Australia and our allies.

Northrop Grumman have, incidentally, just flown a great big maritime surveillance drone which would do wonders for Australian border protection.

You don’t need to take over the company to steal its intellectual property.
I hear that CEA is working on phased array radar for the Royal Australian Navy and microwave weapons designed to blind enemy soldiers.

Phased array radars, yes. Weapons to blind people, no.

Rumours about devices aimed at making babies more palatable are also false.

I hope the employees get some sort of benefit. I get the impression this is a little Canberra company that has done some great things in the industry in terms of R & D of radar technology etc.

Insitec and EOS are a local companies as well – operating in Queanbeyan, Fyshwick and Kingston.

IIRC…….. Northrop have owned 51% of CEA Technologies for a few years now.

I don’t think you’re recalling correctly.

In the real world Northrop Grumman own 49% but don’t let facts get in the way of a good story.
