Nulka is an anti-ship missile defence system and BAE Systems is the prime contractor responsible for design, development and integration of the Nulka system.
     
Nulka is a rocket propelled active decoy system designed to lure anti-ship missiles away from their intended target. It is deployed on more than 140 surface combat ships in the US, Canadian and Australian navies and is Australia's largest and most successful regular defence export.

The Nulka system relies on a strong Australian supply chain and supports high-tech manufacturing in regional centres through the involvement of suppliers including Milspec Engineering, Thales Australia and Varley.

BAE Systems Director Aerospace Steve Drury said: “This contract continues our provision of the world’s most advanced soft kill anti-ship missile defence system to the Royal Australian Navy and the United States Navy. I’m looking forward to continuing our long-term and strategically aligned partnership with both navies.”
