Mulloka, an active ship-board sonar system was developed from the skills of WRE, now called Defence Research Centre Salisbury (DRCS), and the Royal Australian Naval Research Laboratories (RANRL), to take advantage of the special acoustic properties of Australian waters and to meet the RAN's tactical needs; industry participation came from Thorn-EMI and Plessey. Mulloka was adopted for operations use.
