Ferra has capabilities in communication and control systems, fibre composites manufacture, design and engineering support to efficiently deliver your maritime projects.

Most recently, after an 18-month Global Supply Chain selection process, Ferra Engineering has been contracted to manufacture and assemble a tactical submarine navigation radar system for Thales Phoenice.  The system will include a high-torque motor and complex control system to withstand wave slaps at different sea states without impairing the performance of the radar, which will be critical to the Phoenice radar’s performance.

The Thales contracts underlines both the company’s journey to becoming a provider of complex systems and the capabilities of Australian industry.
