Jindalee Operational Radar Network (JORN)

Lockheed Martin Australia Recognised with 2016 ESH Excellence Award

The Next Generation of Surveillance

Experience, Delivery & Performance


Australia’s Jindalee Operational Radar Network (JORN) provides long-range Over-The-Horizon Radar (OTHR) surveillance for the detection of aircraft and ships in Australia’s northern maritime approaches. Regular upgrades have ensured that JORN sets the standard for OTHR technology and remains an important element of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) Command and Control and Airspace Battle Management networks.

The development of JORN’s next iteration (AIR 2025 Phase 6) is arguably JORN’s most important technological advancement since Lockheed Martin Australia (LMA) delivered the integrated network into service in 2003. This upgrade will deliver a system infrastructure that will be crucial to ensuring JORN can continue to provide the ADF with the capability it needs for decades to come.

LMA has the expertise, experience and proven track record to deliver this important element of Australia’s national security enterprise.

The Jindalee Operational Radar Network, or JORN, is Australia’s “over-the-horizon” long-range surveillance system that uses the latest radar technology to detect aircraft and ships beyond Australia’s borders. Lockheed Martin Australia continues to evolve the innovative technology that makes JORN the most capable and advanced system now and in the future.
