BAE Systems has opened a new engineering hub in Melbourne, Australia, that will integrate the company’s aerospace, autonomous systems, and guided weapons research into a single facility. The building, which will accommodate more than 300 BAE employees, will give teams from BAE's Aerospace and Autonomous Systems Development, and Weapon Systems, access to modern laboratories to support a range of advanced design and test activities. BAE will initially lease approximately 3000 m² and three floors of the new complex with capacity available to expand its presence if required.
