Gear of the future for our troops

The Morrison Government has approved a project to enhance and continuously improve the equipment used by the Australian Defence Force.

Minister for Defence, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP, said the Integrated Soldier Systems project, valued at up to $1 billion over its 13-year life cycle, would deliver a range of items of equipment to the ADF for use by our troops.

“We’re taking a flexible approach here,” said Minister Pyne, “investing up to $240 million between now and 2023, with the flexibility to update and change things as technology develops into the future.”
