Boeing has won a $665 million Australian contract to upgrade ageing mobile communication systems and computer networks.

As per the contract, Boeing will design, develop and deliver a modern, digital communications system to support the deployment of operational headquarters and enable access to Defence’s strategic networks.

Under Project LAND 2072 Phase 2B, Defence will replace ageing mobile communication systems and computer networks, providing digital wideband voice, data and video services over wireless and wired infrastructure.

The newly acquired capability will enable deployed forces to operate more effectively by providing digital communications.

It will give commanders an increased level of situational awareness, command and control, and information sharing capability; improving the capacity, flexibility and responsiveness of the ADF during operations.

The contracts will be managed from the Boeing Defence Australia Brisbane facility and include subcontracts with Harris Communications Australia and GH Varley.

Initial Operational Capability is expected in 2017, with Final Operational Capability in 2020.
