Babcock Australasia has been down-selected for the next stage of Land125 Phase 4 Integrated Soldier System (ISS) with a solution that draws on sovereign industry capability and an extensive network of Australian suppliers.

Land 125 Phase 4 will deliver an ISS integrating all elements and subsystems that are used, worn or carried by soldiers in any operational context or environment for up to 72 hours without resupply.

The down-selection reflects the company's longstanding expertise in multiple areas. Andy Davis, Babcock Australasia's managing director - defence said.  Babcock's technology integration, asset management, and strategic procurement solutions will enable the integration of specialist products by different providers after introducing a digital development environment as part of its solution.

“In partnership with Defence, Babcock brings extensive, proven expertise in technology integration and asset management to the LAND125 Phase 4 project, delivering an ISS to equip Australian soldiers now and into the future,” Davis said. 

“Babcock has approached LAND125 Phase 4 in an innovative way that is beneficial for Defence, looking at ‘best of breed’ products and enabling Australian small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to integrate their world-leading product into the ISS for an optimal cost.”

“Babcock puts the needs of the customer first by integrating end-user focused and Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) agnostic solutions, partnering with local suppliers to deliver sovereign industry capability.”

Davis commented that Babcock is "supplier-agnostic" in their approach to the ISS, supporting the success of the program and the quality of the product.

“Platforms and products are chosen in accordance with rigorous evaluation processes that always put the customer and final user needs first. The result is a robust approach that delivers sovereign capability through local facilities and supply chains that are integrated, reliable and secure,” Mr Davis said.

“Babcock invites suppliers to work with us in partnership with Defence, as we bring a new way of working to LAND125 Phase 4.”
