An information communications technology system from Leidos Australia will upgrade the Australian Defence Force’s (ADF’s) Joint Command Support Environment under a $55 million contract announced on 4 November.

The system will manage ADF operations and major joint and coalition exercises for the next five years. The contract includes options to extend for a further five years. 

Head of Joint Systems in the Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group, Rear Admiral Tony Dalton, said: ‘The contract will enable defence to more effectively and efficiently sustain a key system supporting the ADF’s command and control of operations.

‘The Joint Command Support Environment is a key system used by Headquarters Joint Operations Command to plan, monitor and conduct military campaigns, operations, joint exercises and other activities to meet Australia’s national objectives.’
