The Elbit Systems Australia Battle Management System (BMS) was reported by local media that it would be withdrawn from service in Australian forces from next week citing security problems.

But the company’s managing director Major General (Retired) Paul McLachlan has issued a statement claiming the news reports were based on rumours.

The statement reads: “Elbit Systems of Australia strongly refutes the security rumours raised in recent media articles.

Elbit Systems of Australia utilises secure software development processes in collaboration with the Department of Defence, including the provision of all source code.

Elbit Systems of Australia will continue to work closely with the Australian Defence Force to deliver its network capability requirements, utilising our 250-strong workforce, including 80 military veterans and 100 systems and software engineers.

Elbit Systems of Australia is expanding and enhancing our proven ability to bring world-leading innovative technologies to meet Australian capability requirements for the Australian Defence Force, homeland security and emergency management agencies into the future.”
