The potential to use a small drone interfaced with XTEK’s software to locate, track and communicate targets to a remote weapon system provides significant benefits to the Australian Army.

XTEK Ltd - XTEK joins government-funded program to demonstrate its technology for the Australian Army
This collaboration has important strategic value for XTEK

XTEK Ltd (ASX:XTE) has joined along with 16 other companies in the government-funded C4 (Command Control Communications and Computing) EDGE Program demonstration for the Australian Army.

EOS Defence Systems (ASX:EOS) is acting as the lead contractor of the C4 EDGE (Evolutionary Digital Ground Environment) Program to deliver Phase 1 in the second half of the calendar year 2020.

The C4 EDGE program intends to deliver a demonstration of Australian industry capability of C4 technology in late 2021 (subject to the Australian Army approval of the next phase).

This strategic collaboration provides XTEK with the opportunity to leverage the unique capabilities of its XTatlas system and enhance the situational awareness of select frontline soldiers.

XTatlas is a small unmanned aircraft system (SUAS) developed by XTEK.

“Significant benefits to the Australian Army”

XTEK managing director Philippe Odouard said: “This industry collaboration provides XTEK with the opportunity to showcase our XTatlas software, alongside other complementary sub-systems and technology from distinguished Australian partners.

“The potential to use a SUAS interfaced with XTatlas software to locate, track and communicate targets to a remote weapon system provides significant benefits to the Australian Army.

“This collaboration has important strategic value for XTEK, including demonstrating and raising awareness of XTatlas advanced capabilities to key parties and accelerate global commercialisation.”

Actionable intelligence software

Phase 1 will design and define the demonstration system, establish the essential accreditation architecture and processes necessary to deliver an ‘accreditable by design’ demonstration capability and associated industry development plans.

Subject to Australian Army funding approval of the next phase, the C4 EDGE Program expects to deliver a capability demonstration, offering Australian C4 technology by the end of the calendar year 2021.

XTEK will leverage its proprietary XTatlas software, that currently focuses on geospatial situational awareness from sensor feeds including SUAS video and metadata, to further develop and optimise other aspects of its actionable intelligence software capability in line with the requirements of the C4 EDGE Program.
