Defence Minister Marise Payne, who was joined by Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group Deputy Secretary Kim Gillis for the opening, said the new office will help the company's continual development of its products.

"The headquarters will enable Harris to expand further into prototyping systems integration and assurance, which is essential to modern ADF missions," Minister Payne said.

"There are now about 20,000 Harris radios in service across land, sea and air platforms in the ADF, ensuring they have the cutting-edge capability they need to keep our nation safe and secure.

"The Tactical Communications Network will provide fast, accurate, secure and reliable digital communications that will enable our forces to make better informed decisions faster, by distributing the right information to the right people at the right time, increasing the likelihood of success on the battlefield."

In 2017, Harris Defence Australia was awarded the LAND 200 contract to further tactical communications digitisation in support of modernising mission command.
