FA18Small to Medium Enterprises, such as Partech Systems, play a critical role in supporting the Australian Defence Forces.

SME-s account for 30% of defence spending and are vital for jobs and growth in the Australian Economy. SME-s are fundamental to building a strong Australian defence industry.

The niche expertise that SME-s offer together with inherent agility and capacity for innovation coupled with the mature processes and management structures of Prime Contractors enables industry to provide defence with optimum support.

Partech Systems is an Australian Defence SME with a niche capability in the support of Avionics Automatic Test Equipment.

We currently provide various levels of technical support to Australian Defence prime contractors and directly to the Australian Defence Force. We provide support in the following areas:

ATE Maintenance

We maintain the automatic test equipment that is used by the Royal Australian Navy in the maintenance of the avionics suite from the S-70B-2 Seahawk Helicopters.

Test Program Set Maintenance

We upgrade automatic test equipment hardware and software test program sets to accommodate the testing of modified avionics systems from the S-70B-2 helicopters.

ATE in Country Support

We provide engineering support for the Radio Frequency variant of the ELATS automatic test system used by the RAAF in the maintenance of the FA18 fighter aircraft.
