Northrop Grumman has won a contract to build a cyber testing range at an Australian military academy campus based in the country’s capital, the company announced Wednesday.

The University of New South Wales’ Canberra campus, home of the Australian Defence Force Academy, will house the training and education center.

Kathy Warden, vice president and general manager for the cyber intelligence division, said the company works with U.S. allies on cybersecurity and supports education in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics range.

The ADFA, a partnership between the Australian Defence Force and the University of New South Wales, trains and educates future leaders of the country’s navy, army and air force.

In June, Northrop announced its acquisition of Canberra-based cyber firm M5 as part of an expansion effort in the country’s communications and cybersecurity efforts.
