Australia’s defence industry has been invited to put forward its business case in the government’s multimillion-dollar investment to modernise the Australian Defence Force’s critical support capabilities, which will enhance the ADF’s ability to deploy rapidly and independently on a wide range of operations.

The first stage of the Deployable Force Infrastructure Project (LAND 8140) will invest in modernising deployable sanitation, catering, water management and treatment, shelters, and power generation.

Minister for Defence Linda Reynolds said the funding will provide responsive, scalable and adaptable deployable infrastructure to meet evolving operational needs.

“Deployable infrastructure is used by the ADF for a range of tasks including for peacekeeping and warfighting, while also supporting humanitarian assistance and disaster relief efforts such as bushfire emergencies in Australia,” Minister Reynolds said.

A request for tender has been released for a range of elements including deployable small and medium power generation, highly mobile catering and hygiene services systems, as well as deployable kennels for military working dogs.

Minister for Defence Industry Melissa Price also said the tender would include packages of work suited to a variety of businesses, providing significant opportunities for Australian industry.

“I encourage local companies to contribute to the development of capabilities we are seeking which will ensure the men and women in the ADF are able to continue to be supported with the best equipment,” she said.

“Defence will also extend the life for in‑service shelters and water purification and desalination systems, which were used to supply nearly 10 million litres of clean, drinkable water to Kangaroo Island and the Bega Valley during Operation Bushfire Assist.”

The project is also working with industry through the Defence Innovation Hub to develop new technology solutions, such as more efficient and effective power generation and distribution systems.
