Collins Aerospace to supply NextGen DTCS for ADF

The company will serve as the prime contractor and engage the Australian industry to support the project.

Raytheon Technologies subsidiary Collins Aerospace has been selected to upgrade the Digital Terminal Control System (DTCS) for the Australian Defence Force (ADF).

The modernisation contract is valued at $51.75m (A$70m) and will involve the delivery of the next-generation DTCS (NextGen DTCS) by the company.

Under the contract, the company will be responsible for activities such as integration, testing, assessment, training and logistics.

It will see the creation of jobs in the fields of engineering and technology for Australian workers.

Australian Minister for Defence Peter Dutton in a statement said: “The Morrison government congratulates Collins Aerospace on their selection as the prime contractor that will deliver this impressive capability to the Australian Defence Force.

“This government is proud of the positive impacts that the substantial $270bn investment in Australia’s defence capability is bringing to Australian industry.”

The NextGen DTCS will play a key role in improving the ADF’s digital Joint Fires capability.

The system is designed to provide the capability to quickly determine and destroy threats with precision. It also offers safety, speed and reliability to the user.

The NextGen DTCS features advanced targeting systems, tactical software and a user-friendly interface.

Furthermore, it will support joint allied nation operations due to its interoperability with the next-generation strike platforms of the ADF and coalition partner.

Last year, the company won a contract extension to provide ongoing in-country support for the ADF DTCS.
