The Global Supply Chain Program (GSCP) is an initiative by the Australian Government aimed at increasing the number of Australian small to medium-sized enterprises (SME's), universities and research organisations embedded in the supply chains of the multinational prime contractors. Established in 2009, eight prime contractors are involved: Thales, BAE Systems, Boeing, Leidos, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and Rheinmetall.
Thales has been an active participant in the GSCP since 2010 and through its dedicated Industry Engagement Unit (IEU), actively seeks out opportunities for Australian Industry within it’s global supply chain and the supply chain of it’s tier suppliers and partners.
Thales has developed a model which fits with the global business as an innovative electronics and digital technology supplier and has therefore sought Australian companies with niche, emerging technologies that add value to Thales offerings to the market. Australian technology is now embedded in Thales solutions in many parts of the world.
