The Commonwealth has selected Indra Australia to design and manufacture a Level 2 deployable forensic laboratory capability that is being procured under the $36 million Land 154 Phase 2 project.
The system will be used primarily by the Army to provide a forensic support capability for a range of roles, including counter-IED.
The system will equip the Army with a capability that has not previously been configured in similar systems to collect, analyse and document evidence from any IED incident.
In a statement, Indra said that over 90% of the contract will be executed by established Australian equipment manufacturers and distributors. Daronmont Technologies has been selected to manufacture the laboratory shelters to the exacting operational, environmental and technical specifications required by the Commonwealth.
During contract execution, Indra will transfer the appropriate technology to ensure the systems can be maintained and sustained in Australia.
Indra is also currently executing Air 5431 Phase 1 and Navaid replacement projects for the RAAF.
