Minister Reynolds said the funding would provide responsive, scalable and adaptable deployable infrastructure to meet evolving operational needs.

"While this modernised capability will be used on missions overseas, it will also enhance support the ADF provides for humanitarian assistance and responding to natural disasters, including bushfire emergencies in Australia," Minister Reynolds said.

Minister Price added that the project would provide significant new partnership opportunities with Australian defence industry.
