108th Signal Squadron

108th Signal Squadron
108th Signal Squadron (108 Sig Sqn) provides communications along with information systems (CIS) and administrative support to 4th Brigade Headquarters, and its units, to enable effective command and control of the formation.

108 Sig Sqn does this via the provision of radio communications - encompassing Very High Frequency (VHF) and High Frequency (HF) networks that allow for, short-range and long-range, voice and data communications. 

The Squadron also provides field communications in the form of line and Local Area Networks (LAN) to provide telephone, data and computer services to its subscribers, as well as secure messaging by electronic and hand-carriage means. 108 Sig Sqn also provides communication security advice (COMSEC) and frequency management for 4th Brigade units. 

108 Sig Sqn in its role as 4th Combat Support Regiment also provides Combat Services Support (CSS) to 4th Brigade Headquarters, as well as its traditional Communication Information Systems (CIS) role. The CSS role means that limited, but first port of call, logistic support in the form of transport, administrative, pay and technical support is provided by 108 Sig Sqn. 

108th Signal Squadron, as a member of the Royal Australian Corps of Signals, also provides support and advice to units, external of the 4th Brigade group based in the Southern Region of Australia. 

The unit is co-located with Headquarters 4th Brigade at Simpson Barracks, Watsonia. 

Members of 108 Sig Sqn have served on active duty as part of Peace Keeping and Peace Making tours. Examples of these are Malaya, Bougainville and East Timor.
