Poseidon Scientific Instruments and Raytheon Australia.

Prior to acquisition by Raytheon, PSI was a small radio frequency specialist company based in Fremantle WA, designing and manufacturing defence radar oscillators.

After initial contact by the MWA project, PSI became embedded in developing prototypes and building complex field- ready receiving systems required for the MWA.

The collaboration developed as a strong 3-year connection between research and industry. Following this, Raytheon Australia worked closely with ICRAR-Curtin to produce a key LFAA deployment study as part of the SKA pre-construction work package where ICRAR effectively demonstrated beyond doubt the feasibility of deploying the LFAA in WA.
