BAE Systems Australia has announced signing of an agreement with Northrop Grumman to provide components for F-35 aircraft.

The 1000 Audio Control Electronic modules covered under the award are a component for the F-35 aircraft's communication, navigation and identification avionics suite.

The integrated CNI system gives F-35 pilots more than 27 avionics functions. Among them are voice and data communication.

"BAE Systems will use the latest technology to support one of the world's most advanced integrated avionics systems," said David Allott, BAE Systems Australia chief executive. "Our company will establish the only defense-accredited parylene coating capability in Australia and apply advanced manufacturing techniques to produce high-end components for the digital battlespace."

The components will be built and tested at BAE's facility in Edinburgh Parks, near Adelaide, South Australia.

BAE Systems Australia currently manufactures F-35 vertical tail titanium parts for Victoria-based engineering firm Marand and BAE Systems Plc in Britain.
