L3 Micreo welcomes the arrival of Australia's first two F-35s

It’s a special day for L3 Micreo today, as we attend the arrival ceremony for Australia's first two F-35 Joint Strike Fighters at RAAF Williamtown.

F-35 arrives in Australia

L3 Micreo has designed, manufactured and is now supplying an advanced RF switched filter which operates within the F-35 radar system. It provides frequency agility – allowing rapid selection of radar frequencies.

We started working on the JSF program a number of years ago, when the customer came to us with a problem and specification, for which we designed and developed a unique component to meet and surpass requirements. Due to the advanced technology and the need for full qualification testing, it’s been a long but exciting journey to get to where we are today. Now we have a fully qualified and approved product design ready for deployment to help Australia defeat current and emerging threats.

Being involved in the product design and development of a crucial component for this aircraft has opened up further opportunities and helped us successfully compete internationally.

We’re proud to be a part of a program at the forefront of air combat technology, to enhance the ADF’s situational awareness and combat effectiveness. Our contract provides continued work in production for employees at our Brisbane-based facilities and raises our industry profile with Prime contractors that our products are amongst the best in the world.
