Tectonica to deliver camera technology for Australian Army Boxer CRVs

Tectonica has secured a contract with Rheinmetall Defence Australia to deliver sophisticated camera technology for the Australian Army’s new Boxer 8×8 Combat Reconnaissance Vehicles (CRVs).

Tectonica has secured a contract with Rheinmetall Defence Australia to deliver sophisticated camera technology for the Australian Army’s new Boxer 8×8 Combat Reconnaissance Vehicles (CRVs).

As agreed, Tectonica will provide ALTERATM Local Situation Awareness System (LSAS) for the Boxer CRVs, which are set to be built at Rheinmetall’s Military Vehicle Centre of Excellence (MILVEHCOE) from next year.

The LSAS leverages visual technologies allowing the vehicle crew to see their surrounding environment while remaining protected under armour.

This is Tectonica’s second contract under LAND 400 Phase 2 project that involves procuring 211 Boxer 8×8 CRVs for the Australian Army.

Last year, the company was contracted to install LSAS on vehicles on the early capability delivery fleet of Boxers that are being manufactured in Europe.

Concurrently, Tectonica has secured another contract that involves the delivery of its BANTAMTM data and power distribution system to the Germany Army.

The BANTAMTM power system is developed in Australia and is used to distribute power from a central source on dismounted soldiers through modular high-tech power management devices.

The technology will be deployed through the Bundeswehr’s Very High Readiness Joint Task Force (VJTF) and will be fitted to every soldier wearing a computerised backpack.

The total value of the two contracts amounts to more than A$25m ($17.85m).

Tectonica managing director David Levy said: “Our partnership with Rheinmetall is a great example of industry working together to strengthen the Australian Defence Force and build sovereign industry capability.”
