Sea to Summit will receive $30 million as part of a contract with the Australia Defence Force, with the WA-based defence business providing shelters, training and protective equipment to personnel in Australia and overseas.

The funding was announced today by Defence Minister Linda Reynolds, who said Sea to Summit would provide equipment and training that would make the ADF’s service men and women safer.

“The partnership is part of the Liberal-National Government’s commitment to modernising the ADF, which is why we are investing $200 billion over the decade in defence capability,” said Ms Reynolds.

“Under the Integrated Soldier Systems Project investments will also be made in army’s ability to acquire the next generation of body armour, helmet and equipment carriage system, field equipment, combat flotation aids, and simulation and training systems.”

The contract has an initial five-year term with three additional five-year options to extend.

Sea to Summit managing director Roland Tyson said the business now has an opportunity to work collaboratively with the government to determine, design and supply the field equipment to be used by the ADF.

“This program will ensure that field equipment items; such as sleep systems, cookware, and navigation tools, are continuously updated and improved, meaning that the ADF will always be presented with the best and most innovative solutions that industry has to offer,” he said.
