The Australian War Memorial’s purpose is to commemorate the sacrifice of those Australians who have died in war. Its mission is to assist Australians to remember, interpret and understand the Australian experience of war and its enduring impact on Australian society.However, due to the recent nature of the War in Afghanistan, the Memorial has a technology gap from this War. EPE and our partners Allen-Vanguard, Med-Eng and QinetiQ North America have been able to contribute equipment deployed in Afghanistan with Australian troops designed to protect troops from the danger of IEDs. The equipment donated includes a PCM (Portable Counter Measures), EOD9 bombsuit and Talon IV Robot.
EPE would like to thank our partners Allen-Vanguard, Med-Eng and QinetiQ North America for their support to the ongoing commemoration of the contribution made by Australian troops in Afghanistan.
