JP 2025 Ph 3/4 Jindalee Operational Radar Network

Prime contractor: RLM Systems

The Jindalee Operational Radar Network consists of the network control centre at RAAF Edinburgh near Adelaide, South Australia and two new over-the-horizon radars, one near Longreach, Queensland and the other near Laverton, Western Australia. The existing Jindalee radar system near Alice Springs, Northern Territory has also been incorporated to form a three-radar network that is centrally controlled from RAAF Edinburgh. With the successful delivery of the Jindalee Operational Radar Network in April 2003 having resulted in a major enhancement of national surveillance capability, the project's acquisition component is essentially completed.

The remaining project work focuses on maintenance and support activities and engineering services that provide both facility sustainment and higher-end technical upkeep of the network's assets.

Actual expenditure for 2004-05 exceeded the revised estimate due to better than expected performance by the contractor.

The project contributes to Air Force capability.
