29 June 2021

The Australian Missile Corporation (AMC) is pleased to announce the latest addition to the AMC collaboration with the signing of Moog Australia. This follows previous announcements of collaborations with Quickstep, Black Sky Aerospace, John Hart, Allweld Manufacturing, Benchon, Milspec Manufacturing, Thomas Global Systems, Skyborne, Archer Materials, Air Affairs Australia and Sage. The expertise of these companies with world-leading insights will be critical to support the Australian Government as it realises its vision for a sovereign guided weapons enterprise equipped and ready to support the Australian Defence Force.

The Australian Missile Corporation is a subsidiary of NIOA, formed to facilitate collaboration between industry partners, academia, State Governments and Defence in response to the Australian Government’s call to establish a sovereign guided weapons enterprise.

Robert Nioa, CEO of NIOA and the Australian Missile Corporation welcomed Moog Australia:

‘’We are looking forward to partnering with Moog. They are a truly innovative company with deep experience in the design, manufacture and integration of high-end guided weapon systems. Moog's commitment to ‘100 percent quality, 100 percent on time delivery' is exactly the same winning mindset the AMC wants to cultivate in the guided weapons enterprise.”

Bryan O'Connor, Managing Director of Moog Australia, said: "With a legacy spanning nearly 70 years, Moog has been providing precision steering controls and propulsion systems for missiles travelling up to hypersonic speeds. Similarly, Moog is excited to partner with the AMC in developing a sovereign guided weapons industrial base in Australia."

NIOA was founded in regional Queensland in 1973 and is the largest Australian-owned weapons and munitions Prime Contractor. Committed to the development of Australian sovereign capability, NIOA is investing $130m in domestic munitions and explosives manufacturing over the next five years, including a $60m artillery shell forging plant in Maryborough Queensland with joint-venture partner Rheinmetall Waffe Munitions, an upgrade of the Commonwealth’s Government-owned Benalla munitions plant in Victoria and an $11m expansion of its Brisbane warehouse and distribution facility.
