Eyes on the sea - companies compete for Australian maritime surveillance contract


AVALON, Australia (Reuters) - Major global defence contractors want to sell Australia on cutting-edge technology such as high-altitude, solar-electric powered drones and optionally manned aircraft to keep an eye on the oceans.

Airbus SE, Italy's Leonardo SpA, Northrop Grumman Corp and Lockheed Martin Corp are among the companies that have expressed interest in providing Australia's Department of Home Affairs with such equipment, showcased at the Australian International Airshow last week.
