Australia has officially opened the Pitt-Johnston Electromagnetic Warfare Research Centre, a collaboration between Joint Capabilities Group and the Defence Science and Technology Group, in Adelaide.

This purpose-built facility boasts a secure environment with first-class laboratories, workspaces and high-end information technology to test the survivability of Defence platforms on the electromagnetic spectrum, Australia’s defence ministry said in a release today.

“The location of this facility was carefully considered to optimise the contribution of Defence Science and Technology Group, while leveraging the operational experience within co-located units and the Defence Industry Hub in Adelaide,” Chief of Joint Capabilities, Lieutenant General John Frewen said. “This world-class research centre is a major boost to Defence’s Electromagnetic Warfare Program and reinforces the Edinburgh Defence Precinct as a critical hub.”

The Pitt-Johnston Electromagnetic Warfare Research Centre is named after Wing Commander Mark Pitt and Group Captain Wayne Johnston, recognising their outstanding contributions to the development of Joint Electromagnetic Warfare capabilities.
