L3 Micreo and Defence - SILVERSHIELD System Development Collaboration
In 2017, as part of the Australian Department of Defence’s REDWING Program Phase 2, L3 Micreo provided professional, specialist engineering resources to assist Defence in the development of the next generation vehicle-mounted electronic force protection system to protect Afghan National Defence Security Forces from Improvised Explosive devices (IEDs).
Five specialist L3 Micreo design engineers were deployed from Brisbane to work within Defence Science & technology (DST) Group’s facilities in Adelaide for a 10-month period through the design and prototype phases. It was a collaborative product development project and a new and unique way of Defence and Industry working together.
The outcome is SILVERSHIELD – an effective solution which inhibits remotely triggered IEDs.
