Australia: Exelis has announced plans to establish its Asia Pacific regional headquarters in Melbourne, Australia. Working closely with the Victorian Coalition Government, Exelis will build a state-of-the-art research and development (R&D), testing and systems integration facility to support both local and export opportunities.
The new facility is expected to create more than 60 new jobs in Australia, with plans for future growth already under way. Exelis previously established a presence in Melbourne through the acquisition of C4i in January 2013. From its new facility, Exelis workforce will continue to support business pursuits globally with system deployments in over 30 countries.
