The Australian subsidiary of UK services group Serco has won a contract from the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) to provide maintenance support for weapons and systems produced by Rafael Advanced Defense Systems.

In a release, Serco said that it will carry out the $14.5 million contract through its subsidiary Serco Australia Defence, which will collaborate with two key subcontractors, Rafael and Northrop Grumman Innovation Systems (formerly Orbital ATK). Work on the project will start in 2019.

In an additional statement issued with Rafael, Serco added that their partnership will focus on delivering maintenance, engineering, and technical support for “dozens” of Rafael-produced Typhoon and Mini-Typhoon remote weapon stations (RWS) and the Toplite electro-optical (EO) surveillance, observation, and targeting system.
