The Australian Defence Force’s (ADF) ability to plan and execute complex operations will be significantly improved thanks to a $60 million investment in the Headquarters Joint Operations Command (HQJOC) in Bungendore, NSW.
Two contracts have been awarded to Lockheed Martin Australia and Computer Sciences Corporation Australia as part of Joint Project (JP)2030 Phase 8, Joint Command Support Environment.
JP2030 Phase 8 takes forward the cohesive and integrated Joint Command Support Environment (JCSE) at HQJOC, which coordinates major Defence operations on land, air and sea.
Minister for Defence Materiel Senator Kim Carr said acquiring this cutting-edge technology would significantly improve the ADF’s ability to plan and conduct joint operations.
"This new technology will make planning operations more efficient and effective and increase the speed of decision making," Senator Carr said.
"I am pleased that these companies were judged best to further develop the command and control system. This demonstrates the capability of the Australian Defence industry," Senator Carr said
"I am committed to working with industry to build and sustain these capabilities, which are so important for our national security."
Computer Sciences Corporation Australia Pty Ltd has secured the JCSE System Integrator contract and Lockheed Martin Australia was awarded the JCSE Development Organisation contract.
