Land Systems Opportunities list

The Land Systems Alliance Committee has developed the following list of opportunities for information of companies in Victoria considering winning and delivering support to Defence. 

 

This Table has been produced by your Committee and reflects our view on the likely future opportunities for industry in Victoria to participate in the delivery of ADF land systems projects and the subsequent equipment sustainment and upgrade. The Table includes projects announced in the 2020 Force Structure Review.

Please note that the information in the Table reflects the views of your Committee and should be treated as a guide only – it is not a document that has been endorsed by any external agency. We would welcome feedback from you as to its value. If you have information that can add value to the Opportunity table then please send it in as well as raising any areas where information is incorrect.

 Members or new companies are encouraged to discuss these projects with Committee members for further information or support. To gain further knowledge of the spreadsheet below, please login.
