Codan joins C4 EDGE to deliver C4 capabilities for the Australian Army

Codan Communications were officially welcomed to the C4 EDGE team by Senator the Hon David Fawcett, Chair of the Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade at an event held yesterday at Codan’s Adelaide headquarters.

Speaking at the event, Senator Fawcett said:

The Australian Government has recognized that elements of Australian industry are a fundamental input to our defence capability if we are going to maintain a sovereign capacity for independent action. This contract allows an innovative approach for a partnership of SMEs around Australia—including Codan Communications and Solinnov here in SA—to leverage their IP and expertise to demonstrate that Australian industry can provide an advanced, integrated command and control environment designed for the Australian Army’s mission and environment.”

The program will leverage internationally agreed open standards to grow and demonstrate Australian C4 Industry capacity and capability to deliver a battlegroup and below C4 capability.

“Codan has over 60 years experience delivering outstanding technical solutions for defence, safety, and security markets in some of the harshest environments on earth and we are proud to be part of Australia’s C4 EDGE communications program”, said Paul Sangster, Executive General Manager of Codan Communications.

Headquartered in Adelaide, South Australia, Codan Communications is a leading international designer and manufacturer of premium communications solutions that deliver capability worldwide for the military, defence, humanitarian, peacekeeping, commercial, security and public safety markets.

Steven Jenkins, VP Systems & Solutions of Codan Communications, said: “Coupled with our sovereign manufacturing capabilities, Codan’s continued investment in the tactical market has provided us with significant growth over the last three years. This has enabled us to secure key programs with a variety of defence customers, such as land mine and IED detectors (to the Australian Army, Canadian Army, US Military and many more), as well as high frequency radio systems (to US AFRICOM, US PACOM, and numerous Asia-Pacific and African Defence forces). We are honoured to be part of the C4 EDGE communications program and welcome the opportunity to continue the enhancement of the Australian Defence Force’s capabilities”.
