A partnership between Boeing Defence Australia and Defence will create more highly-skilled jobs in Brisbane, Adelaide and Williamtown.

The $170 million contract signed today will continue the Vigilare System, which is being renamed “Wakulda”.

The local indigenous Worimi people in the Williamtown region have endorsed a proposal to use the name, which means ‘together’, in honour of the revitalised agreement.

Wakulda fuses data from radars and other sensors to support the Royal Australian Air Force’s national air defence command and control functions.
