Design and Manufacture

Bellinger has the capabilities to design and manufacture both complete systems and system components. Our capabilities primarily cover the fields of Command, Control, Communications and Computing.
Recent projects have involved the design and integration of Wide Area Differential GPS systems and interfacing for the naval survey vessels and Mine hunters. Bellinger have also designed, installed and tested a Link 16 system on-board HMAS ANZAC and a development system in the SAAB test site in Adelaide. These systems not only give LINK16 Situational awareness, but allow for Link16 tracks to be forwarded to the Link 11 net and interface with the ship’s C2 system.

A specialised information storage system has also been developed allowing not only time, but also GPS position, receiver configuration, user data, and other serial or Ethernet data to be stored on the voice tracks of a wideband tape or digital media recorder. This allows unprecedented evaluation capability for post mission analysis.

Design and manufacture are completed In-house including PCB design, AutoCAD work and prototyping.
