Thales has won a contract from Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles Australia to supply new crew intercom system, Sotas Lite for Australian Defence Force under Land 121 Phase 3B Project. 

The contract for the C4I system announced last week, will see Thales in Australia conduct design activities for the C4I system that will be installed in vehicles supplied by Rheinmetall, integrating customer furnished radios and systems into the intercom system. 

Thales in the Netherlands will supply the Sotas Lite system. The first of these systems were installed in the 2009/2012 Australian Bushmaster programme. This will be the third platform in the ADF in which Sotas will be integrated.

Under this project, the Australian Defence Force will acquire up to 2,536 medium and heavy category logistic trucks. The Phase 3B fleet will include protected vehicles, for operational deployment and tactical training, and unprotected vehicles for tactical training purposes only. Rheinmetall has been contracted to supply these vehicles by the Australian Defence Force.
