About us

Silentium Defence is a growing deep-tech business shaping the future of Australia’s ground and space surveillance capability. We specialise in the development of passive radar solutions for Defence and civilian customers. But what are passive radar solutions, you ask?

Passive radar uses pre-existing sources of radio frequency energy (such as broadcast TV and radio waves), to track objects in an environment. It provides similar information to traditional radar systems but does not emit any RF signals. This means the user can maintain their situational awareness without advertising their presence. In essence, to ‘see without being seen’.

Our technology is a game changer and we’re on a mission to create a new era in surveillance. We have a highly skilled, high-performing collaborative team and are looking for people as passionate as we are to grow our business and make impact on a global scale. What drives us every day is knowing we’re a small part of a bigger picture to protect our incredible country and its critical infrastructure assets for many generations to come.
