Harris Defence Australia has opened its new Australian headquarters at Hamilton in Brisbane.
The new facility which was officially opened by Defence Minister Marise Payne will support Harris’ execution of the Army’s new Battlefield Management System.
“The headquarters will enable Harris to expand further into prototyping systems integration and assurance, which is essential to modern ADF missions,” Minister Payne said in a statement.
“There are now about 20,000 Harris radios in service across land, sea and air platforms in the ADF, ensuring they have the cutting-edge capability they need to keep our nation safe and secure.
“The Tactical Communications Network will provide fast, accurate, secure and reliable digital communications that will enable our forces to make better informed decisions faster, by distributing the right information to the right people at the right time, increasing the likelihood of success on the battlefield. I congratulate Harris on their excellent support to delivering new capability to the ADF as we digitise the battlefield.”
In 2017, Harris Defence Australia was also awarded the Land 200 contract to further tactical communications digitisation in support of modernising mission command.
