BAE Systems Australia has selected Australian Aerospace Composites (AAC) for future manufacture of Dorsal Fins for the Evolved SeaSparrow Missile (ESSM).

AAC explain they will join a number of other Australian industries involved in the ESSM program with production expected to continue to 2018 for the current model. They say a forthcoming Block II ESSM may require dorsal fin redesign effort by the two companies.

According to AAC Australian involvement in the multi-nation ESSM program commenced in 1995 and has achieved over 300 million dollars in export sales.
