Fujitsu announced that it has signed a three-year contract with the Australian Department of Defence, working with Defence industry partners KBR and Leidos, to uplift and modernise Defence’s existing and planned future ICT environments. Fujitsu will provide services including service desk functions, end-user and workstation support, VoIP and email communications, collaboration tools, network infrastructure, and network services management across all Defence operations.

Defence’s deployed ICT network environments provide essential command, control, situational awareness, and allied/partner interoperability services for ADF personnel serving on deployed operations and exercises. This includes troops in the field, ships at sea, and joint headquarters and support bases deployed domestically, regionally and across the globe.

Key deliverables of the Defence contract include the continuous sustainment of in-service deployed ICT environments that are an essential part of Defence’s operational capability; centrally-governed security and accreditation and enterprise governance that will align deployed ICT with Defence’s wider networks; enhancing the capacity and skillsets of Defence’s ICT workforce; and building strategic partnerships that encourage performance and prioritises continuous improvement.

Graeme Beardsell, CEO of Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand, said, “Fujitsu is pleased to continue its longstanding relationship with the Department of Defence and to be working collaboratively with Defence’s industry partners KBR and Leidos. Where together we will deliver a comprehensive solution that will provide exceptional support to critical Defence operations. Through our strategic partnership with Defence, we look forward to provisioning surge capacity and enhancing skills with our ADF colleagues.”

Fujitsu’s ongoing relationship with the Department of Defence is providing employment opportunities for Australians, with more than 1,400 cleared Fujitsu staff dedicated to delivering the technology and skills needed to support Australia’s defence capabilities.
