APC Technology Win Contract to Supply Radio Operator Consoles to Raytheon Australia


Adelaide based designer & manufacturer APC Technology has partnered with Raytheon Australia
to provide radio operator consoles as part of SEA 1654 program that will overhaul the Royal
Australian Navy’s maritime operational support capability.


APC Technology has an established relationship with Raytheon Australia including the delivery of
a range of bespoke products for the Air Warfare Destroyer Communication and Information
Systems (CIS) including: UPS, ruggedised mounting arrangements for various COTS equipment,
Thin Client Enclosures (to house COTS computers) and Ship’s Consoles.


“Raytheon Australia recognises the vital role that Australian industry plays in the development and
execution of solutions for the Australian Defence Force”, said Michael Ward managing director of
Raytheon Australia. “Every day we work hand-in-hand with Australian suppliers, including APC
Technology, to achieve mission success for our Defence customer.”


“We have worked on multiple projects with Raytheon Australia enabling us to demonstrate our
depth of knowledge and ability to meet criteria, budgets and deadlines”, said Scott Begbie,
Managing Director of APC Technology. “This latest contract further cements our relationship with
one of the world’s leading prime contractors.”


APC Technology will be responsible for the manufacture of a range of computing solutions as well
as the planning, sourcing and layout of the consoles. An integral part of the process will be the
responsibility for the integration, power distribution, airflow management and cable management
of the consoles. The design of the red-black architecture of the system will also be managed by
APC Technology.


Throughout the Air Warfare Destroyer program APC Technology has retained an astute customer
focus and exhibited a robust collaborative culture with an ethos intent on delivery of successful
project outcomes.

APC Technology’s commitment to resolving challenging issues and taking
ownership of problems that arose through the development of these custom products was an
outstanding contribution to the success of the CIS project and broader AWD Program.

This commitment from APC Technology has not gone unnoticed and they have recently been
contracted to provide solutions for the SEA 1654 AOR project as a supplier to Raytheon Australia.
