Luminact Pty Ltd, an Australian-owned and operated provider of engineering services and solutions, has been awarded a contract to deliver eighty-four next generation Mobile Retransmission Systems for the Australian Defence Force (ADF). Luminact, in partnership with electrical and power experts REDARC Defence and Space, will design and manufacture the systems in Australia, bringing a wealth of experience in the land communications domain to the project, and enhancing local industry capability.
The Mobile Retransmission System (MRS) is a rapidly deployable suite of equipment to enable retransmission and flexible tactical communications in the battlespace. It includes a Primary Retransmission Subsystem (PRS), Secondary Communications Subsystem (SCS), and a bespoke Power Distribution Subsystem (PDS) featuring world-class power management technology provided by REDARC that is both modular and expandable. The MRS can be configured by commanders to suit individual mission requirements and provides a range of tactical line-of-sight, as well as beyond line-of-sight communications options.
Luminact co-founder and director, Andrew Skinner is quoted: “We are excited to be partnering with REDARC to delivery this important capability to Army. The MRS will provide a flexible and robust deployable communications system for the ADF, and we are proud to be delivering it with a very high level of Australian Industry Capability (AIC) content.”
