Adelaide-based Babcock Australasia was selected through a worldwide open tender process based on their ability to provide expertise and best practices to deliver the solution to defence requirements.

The C-CBRNE capability provides technologies to prevent and defeat chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive threats used against Australia’s national interests.

The requirements were to reform existing functions and processes in order to realise savings and efficiencies in the management of the existing commercially available C-CBRNE capability.

Babcock Australasia operates across marine, aviation and land sectors to advise the technical, complex platform and critical service delivery requirements of their customers.

Babcock will work with the Australian Department of Defence to streamline sustainment and acquisition processes for C-CBRNE using Babcock’s asset management systems.

Graeme Nayler, Managing Director of Land for Babcock Australasia said Babcock Australasia the win positions Babcock well for future Defence and Emergency Services contracts.

“We look forward to continuing to partner with defence in future programmes, such as the replacement engineering fleet, lethality programme, integrated land target systems and deployable infrastructure,” he said.

South Australia’s capital Adelaide is Australia’s defence hub and hosts world leading defence companies such as BAE Systems, Thales, Lockheed Martin, ASC, SAAB, Rheinmetall and Naval Group.
