GDLS-A supplies and supports the Combat Vehicle System capabilities of the Australian Defence Force and other regional customers.
GDLS Combat Vehicle Systems are supplied to armies around the world either commercially or via government to government arrangements. The unmatched breadth of GDLS' customer base and quantity of vehicles in service ensure that GDLS equipment sets the standard in terms of performance, reliability, durability and value for money.
GDLS-A is a regional capability of GDLS, operating in the Asia Pacific region and located in Australia.
GDLS-A is a prime contractor focussing on the supply of equipment, systems integration services, upgrades, fleet management services and maintenance, repair and overhaul. GDLS-A recognises that all customers are different and works with its customers to develop cost effective and responsive support solutions utilising a mix of both local and global capabilities. A key feature of GDLS support is a seamless integration of customer and GDLS capabilities working side by side in depots, on exercises, and in theatres of operation.
Many of GDLS-A's activities are performed in an environment where Defence Security and Controlled Technology are key considerations.
GDLS-A currently supports a range of vehicle systems including the LAV family of vehicles and Abrams Main Battle Tanks and has real-time reachback to product centres in Sterling Heights, Michigan and London, Ontario.
GDLS-A takes a systems approach to all its projects to ensure that equipment capability is fully defined and understood both initially and through its life cycle of up to 30 years.
