LAND FORCES 2018

ELBIT SYSTEMS AUSTRALIA AT LAND FORCES 2018

Presented in collaboration with the Australian Army, LAND FORCES 2018 is an international industry exposition to showcase equipment, technology and services for the armies of Australia and the Indo-Asia-Pacific.

Elbit Systems Australia (ELSA) will have a major presence at LAND FORCES 2018, showcasing its C4I capability and Battle Management System which is central to the long term strategic partnership forged with the Australian Army.

ELSA’s Battle Management System is being adopted across the board under the Land 200 Tranche 2 project for Army’s new Battlefield Command System. ELSA has also been contracted for Trough Life Support of the system.

ELSA views LAND FORCES 2018 as an important opportunity to showcase its very substantial portfolio and looks forward to announcing its feature attractions as the event approaches.

LAND FORCES 2018 is strategically positioned in a region which boasts some of the fastest-growing economies in the world. But growing threats, including those presented by non-state actors, mean the demand for defence technology to safeguard the region's prosperity and security has never been greater. In 2014, the combined defence budgets of the nations making up the Asia and Indo-Pacific region amounted to US$183 billion.

Australia is strategically positioned within the Indo-Pacific region. The world's only island continent, Australia bridges the Pacific and Indian Oceans. A leading and influential country within the region, Australia is a major trading nation with a highly developed and technologically advanced economy.
