CANBERRA (BNS): Australia has announced plans to overhaul the Department of Defence’s Information and Communications Technology (ICT) services and infrastructure through the Centralised Processing Project.

Minister for Defence Senator David Johnston in a statement said, the aim is to establish a single, integrated capability for the management and provision of data centre facilities, infrastructure and services at the Unclassified, Restricted and Secret information security domain levels.

“Defence has one of the largest ICT environments in Australia with some 100,000 users and this project will consolidate infrastructure and applications, ensuring more efficient and modern systems for Defence users throughout Australia and the world.”

“An effective ICT environment is essential to Defence’s readiness to conduct all operations, including responses to humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operation, both at home and abroad,” he said.

The project will be managed by Lockheed Martin and Defence is currently finalising details for the first stage of implementation.
