The Land Domain of CASG is the single point of accountability for both acquisition and through-life-materiel support for designated land systems for the Australian Defence Force. Comprising Land Systems Division and Armoured Vehicle Division, the Land Domain is responsible for delivery of a diverse range of capabilities to support 'raise, train and sustain' requirements and operational deployments.
