Asension, established in 2018, is an Australian owned company that develops novel and effective solutions to sophisticated electromagnetic spectrum challenges faced by the Australian Defence Force and the Defence industry.

Working with universities, DSTG and industry partners, Asension has developed the foundational technology elements of the future of EW.

Now, we’ve widened the scope of our mission.

In order to reflect the rapid evolution of this work and the start of next generation of Australian technology that intelligently brings together information from multiple sources.

Asension is a sensor fusion, bridging the gap between information and knowledge to deliver a dynamic capability edge.

Welcome to the future of EW.


Working with universities, DSTG and industry partners, Asension delivers software-definable hardware and user-configurable applications, encryption technologies and secure mesh networks to boost real-time defence.

Asension provides advanced EW systems that are supported in-country and built for local conditions. Due to our significant R&D program, our systems utilise AI and ML and our systems can process the data at the edge to minimise communication channel bandwidth requirements.

Our team of radar engineering and electronic warfare professionals build systems and capabilities that seek to enhance the defence of Australia by drawing on our vast collective experience in and around Defence and electronic warfare systems.

As a result, Asension has developed a strong reputation for innovation and, as the first company to launch a payload on a space capable rocket from Australian soil, helped lead Australian into the Space 4.0 era.

Asension builds capability through strong strategic collaborations and partnerships. Since we commenced operations, Asension has collaborated with universities across Australia, with the Defence Science and Technology Group (DSTG) and other leaders in the defence and space industry sectors to develop systems and products that will solve complex and challenging problems.

The SME Partnership Agreement with DSTG provides a range of collaborative research projects to ensure that our R&D is purposed for Defence applications.

Asension established an industry collaboration of eight leading Australian-owned space and Defence companies to form the Australian Defence Industry Space Capability Alliance (ADISCA). The ADISCA members can deliver on all the Defence Space Sovereign Industry Capability Priorities (SICP) and are able to provide the Commonwealth with a turn-key and end-end solution for responsive access to space that is 100% Australian owned, controlled and operated.
