Project Description:

The Australian Department of Defence (DoD) is planning to replace the aerospace test and evaluation (T&E) and research and experimentation (R&E) equipment at the Woomera Test Range in order to effectively support Defence T&E and R&E activities in a reliable, controlled, secure and safe environment.

The current systems used at the Woomera Test Range are near the end of their useful life and will not meet the requirements to support future Defence aerospace experimental, developmental and operational T&E flight trials of air platforms and weapons.

Replacement of the extant systems will support all types of aerospace R&E beyond 2015, including the extension of manned and unmanned aircraft performance envelopes, weapons assessment, T&E and R&E for intelligence and electronic warfare systems, and R&E into the effects of weapon systems.

This project phase will require minor expansion and enhancement of existing facilities and supporting infrastructure.

The total estimated value of the contract is US$104.85 million and is expected to be completed by 2018.

Project Location: 2600, Canberra, Australia, Oceania.
