In this episode of the Defence Connect
Spotlight podcast, Lockheed Martin Australia’s Neale Prescott and Rob Milligan
join host Liam Garman to unpack the company’s revolutionary Aegis combat
The podcast begins with an analysis into how Aegis operates as the “brain” of the Royal Australian Navy’s integrated air and missile defence system, and how the upcoming Baseline 9 will provide further cutting edge capabilities to the Royal Australian Navy.
The trio then analyses how the system builds a comprehensive 3D map of the threat environment below, on and above the sea – and how the architecture enables the Royal Australian Navy to integrate with Australia’s allies to build a single battlefield picture.
The podcast wraps up with a discussion of how the Aegis has been able to intercept a series of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM), and what other exciting innovations are on the horizon for the weapons system.
