Australian Army to Receive Robotic Targets

Six Additional RAIDER Mobile Targets

Geelong’s Deakin University is to deliver additional robotics-driven target systems to the Australian Defence Force (ADF), supporting nearly two dozen Australian small businesses, the Department of Defence announced recently.

The contract, valued at over $1 million (€610,000) will see the ADF receive six more RAIDER Mobile Moving Target Systems, which mimic tanks and light armoured vehicles, as well as trailers and thermal targets.

Minister for Defence Industry Melissa Price said the RAIDER was a world-first system developed by the university to provide more realistic mobile target systems for combined arms live fire training.

This project has already injected more than $1.5 million into the community through partnering with Australian small businesses,” she added. “This is leading technology developed here in Australia, which is not only creating opportunities for local industry but also keeping our soldiers safe.”
