The proposed Tactical Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (TUAV) facilities project at Gallipoli Barracks, Enoggera has today received parliamentary approval. This follows the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Works recommending the project proceed.

The TUAV project seeks to enhance the Australian Defence Force's aerial surveillance capabilities for land operations, and selected maritime operations, by acquiring TUAVs tailored for local area surveillance.

The proposed facilities, which are budgeted at $17.45 million, will support the operation, training and maintenance requirements for the new TUAV capability.

The project will also provide working accommodation for the new 20th Surveillance and Target Acquisition Regiment, recently established to operate the TUAVs.

The TUAV facilities project combines the refurbishment of a number of existing facilities at Gallipoli Barracks, with construction of some new purpose-built facilities to support the TUAVs specialised maintenance and training requirements.

Construction is expected to commence late this year for completion by early 2008.
