The Jindalee Operational Radar Network (JORN) is an over-the-horizon-network which provides 24-hour military surveillance across Australia’s northern air and sea approaches. It is Australia’s first comprehensive land and air early warning system, assisting in detecting illegal entry, smuggling, and unlicensed fishing and is an essential component of Australia’s surveillance and intelligence systems.
WGA has partnered with Lucid Consulting in Phase 6 of the JORN project to provide the civil and structural engineering services for the new radar facilities, the nominated Ionospheric Sounder Sites and upgrades of associated accommodation at Harts Range, NT and Mount Everard, Vic. This project ensures the sustainment and ongoing development of the radar capabilities.
The project presents a significant opportunity for the WGA team to showcase their capabilities in the Defence sector. We will continue to be involved throughout the delivery of the project until 2020.
