the soldier is at the centre of the Elbit Systems of Australia’s (ELSA) Land 125 Phase 4 bid, Australian industry partners and collaboration are at the centre of the upcoming industry day. ELSA will host an industry day on Friday 3 December, 2021, following on from the announcement of ELSA’s shortlisting for the Australian Army’s Land 125 Phase 4 Integrated Soldier System in June. 

Elbit Systems of Australia Managing Director, Major General (ret’d) Paul McLachlan AO, CSC said the delivery of an Australian Industry Capability (AIC) was central to the team. “While we are placing the soldier at the centre of the Land 125 Phase 4 bid, we will stand shoulder to shoulder with fellow Australian businesses to bolster local supply chains and create jobs,” McLachlan said.  “We already have runs on the board, collaborating with the Victorian Government and universities in our robotics and innovation hub – the Centre of Excellence – in addition to various SMEs, defence industry, as well as our recent partnership with the Australian Missile Corporation. 

“The shortlisting also demonstrates our commitment to continue to work with defence to provide a capability that will increase the effectiveness of Australian soldiers. We are committed to put the soldier centre stage and have the proven demonstrated ability to produce leading-edge soldier systems from global technology using a highly-skilled sovereign workforce here in Australia. I look forward to welcoming attendees from across Australia.”
