Abaco is a provider of advanced rugged embedded computing solutions and is known as a global leader in open architecture computing and electronic systems for aerospace, defense, and industrial applications. Abaco Systems and REDARC are each uniquely committed to innovation – making a partnership ideal.

The decision to move forward with a strategic partnership came after introductions were made by Team Defence Australia at Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI 2019.)  Abaco and REDARC have since positioned the partnership to align with Australian government requirements and drive Australian sales in major defense programs leveraging the Abaco global sales team.

Abaco Systems and REDARC will collaborate on multiple emerging Australian opportunities, including LAND400, Air6500, Plan Jericho, Loyal Wingman and others. Both teams have complementary capabilities in rugged embedded hardware manufacturing, integration, global supply chain, and logistics, along with deep expertise in Australian industries.  This optimum mix of portfolio and capabilities will enable modernization of Australian defense programs across all domains, while positioning for emerging technologies and programs such as hypersonics, autonomous systems, artificial intelligence and directed energy.
