Townsville-based company Cubic Defence Australia has secured a $5 million contract to deliver training services for the ADF.
The contract is for the first stage of the Integrated Training Environment for Combat Training Centre 2025. The first stage of works will include new communications towers and the upgrade of existing equipment.
“Cubic Defence Australia will deliver a communications capability to support a blended live and virtual training environment for the ADF,” Minister for Defence Industry Melissa Price said.
“Having visited Cubic Defence Australia with local MP Phil Thompson last year, I know they’re a very capable local company, employing Australians and strengthening our defence industry."
Thompson said he was proud to see a Townsville company benefiting from the record investment in Australia’s defence industry.
“I congratulate Cubic Defence Australia on ensuring our ADF has the modern operational training they need to defend Australia’s national interests,” Thompson said. “This advanced training environment replicates the complex and challenging environments of current and potential conflict zones.
“I know from experience that having the opportunity for realistic training simulations can make a real difference for Defence members when faced with real-life situations."
