The Australian Department of Defence has signed a $30 million agreement with Sea to Summit for field equipment for the Australian Army.

Under the Standing Offer Deed, Sea to Summit will provide equipment including shelters, sleeping bags, non-lethal force, adventure training, hand tools, and personal protective equipment to support Australian Defence Force (ADF) operations.

Linda Reynolds, Minister for Defence, said:  ‘As a key defence industry partner, Sea to Summit is ensuring the ADF is well placed to maintain leading-edge field equipment. This deed will help to make the ADF more effective – and that means making our service men and women safer.

‘Under the Integrated Soldier Systems Project investments will also be made in army’s ability to acquire the next generation of body armour, helmet and equipment carriage system, field equipment, combat flotation aids, and simulation and training systems.’

The deal has an initial five-year term with three five-year options.
