Medium Range Ground-Based Air Defence

AIR6502 Phase 1 Medium Range Ground Based Air Defence

As a component to the Australian Defence Force’s (ADF) Integrated Air and Missile Defence Program, the Medium Range Ground Based Air Defence project will deliver a ground-based, middle-layer, area air defence capability, designed to deter, deny and/or defeat air and missile threats. 

The system will be designed to operate both independently or while integrated with other elements of the ADF Integrated Air and Missile Defence capability and will counter a range of current and emerging air and missile threats.

The project achieved First Pass approval in August 2023, and will develop capability options for future Government consideration.
