Australia Delivers 15000 SILVERSHIELD Systems to Afghanistan

Australian Minister for Defence, Christopher Pyne said last week that the SILVERSHIELD capability would boost the confidence of Australia’s Afghan partners when operating in a high threat environment.

“Over 15,000 SILVERSHIELD systems have now been delivered to Afghanistan for training and initial rollout with deliveries now complete,” Pyne said.

“This is an outstanding investment in Australian capability to deliver life-saving, cutting-edge Counter Improvised Explosive Device technology,” he said, adding that “The REDWING program demonstrates successful collaboration between Defence and industry, and SILVERSHIELD is proof of Australian industry’s ability to meet the challenge of high volume and time critical manufacturing.”
