The Royal Australian Corps of Signals

Australian Army soldiers participate in Exercise HAMEL.

The role of the Royal Australian Corps of Signals (RA Sigs) is to provide communications, information systems and electronic warfare support to the Army and the Australian Defence Force to allow command and control of deployed forces in peace, crisis and conflict on any operation anywhere in the world.

Using our unique understanding of the electro-magnetic spectrum, communications systems, information technology and electronic warfare, listening to or interfering with enemy electronic transmissions, the Royal Australian Corps of Signals will enable highly dynamic command and control whilst disrupting that of any adversary. It is a respected and vital part of the Army that is proud of its heritage, operates cutting-edge technology and is always looking to the future.

On the battlefield, RA Sigs provides commanders with the means of controlling the battle using a number of methods including radio, fibre optic, microwave, information systems and satellite links. By planning, deploying and maintaining robust, scalable, secure local and wide area networks, RA Sigs ensures the Army's information services are available 24/7 anywhere in the world.

The Corps motto is ‘Certa Cito’, which is Latin for ‘Swift and Sure’.
