Defence Connect Podcast Network

May 11, 2022

In this episode of the Defence Connect Spotlight podcast, Lockheed Martin Australias Neale Prescott and Rob Milligan join host Liam Garman to unpack the companys revolutionary Aegis combat weapons system.

The podcast begins with an analysis into how Aegis operates as the “brain” of the Royal Australian Navys 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 Australias 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.
