Land 3025

Land 3025 Phase 1 will provide the Special Operations Engineer Regiment with a deployable chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive (CBRNE) defence capability to support special operations and deployed ADF forces. The Department of Defence invited tenders from suitably qualified organisations to enter into a standing offer panel arrangement for the provision of CBRNE equipment to this project. EPE was selected to be on this panel and has signed the Deed with the Commonwealth.

EPE is combining its extensive Special Operations experience with leading edge technology to deliver the ADF lightweight and practical solutions for small deployed teams as part of Land 3025. With a focus on proven technology, EPE’s solutions are robust and deliver advantage over the spectrum of special CBRNE operations.


EPE has been appointed to the Defence Materiel Organisation (DMO) Support Service (DMOSS) panel. The panel provides DMO project and sustainment offices with prequalified specialist service providers.

The DMOSS Panel is continually refreshed to incorporate new skills and panellists on an ‘as-required’ basis to ensure the Panel delivers the outcomes required by defence while delivering value for money. These combined aims are directed at ensuring both Defence and Industry are appropriately responsive to the needs of the evolving Defence Support Services Industry environment in 2013 and beyond.

EPE currently offers specialist services to the DMOSS panel in the areas of explosive hazard and CBRN defence and specialist training needs analysis, training delivery and assessment.

RPDE Program

When the ADF has complex, high-risk problems, Rapid Prototyping, Development and Evaluation (RPDE) delivers the solutions. RPDE is a unique collaboration between Defence, industry and academia, bringing together the best and brightest from across the defence industry spectrum. Selected as an RPDE Associate, EPE helps to address the emerging capability challenges faced by Australian Department of Defence in the areas of CBRN defence and explosive hazards.
