The Australian Defence Force (ADF) has awarded a contract to Geelong’s Deakin University for additional robotics-driven target systems, the Australian Department of Defence announced on 14 February.

The contract, valued at over $1 million, will see the ADF receive six more Raider Mobile Moving Target Systems, which mimic tanks and light armoured vehicles, as well as trailers and thermal targets for combined arms live fire training.

Minister for Defence Industry, Melissa Price, said: ‘This project has already injected more than $1.5 million into the community through partnering with Australian small businesses.

‘This is leading technology developed here in Australia, which is not only creating opportunities for local industry but also keeping our soldiers safe.’
