HARNESSING the power of the
internet, Army has developed a
fresh, dynamic website which was
launched on March 1.
As people are Army’s most
valuable asset, the new website will
support its soldiers and keep them
informed and engaged.
Families are also supported with
links to finance, pay and condi-
tions, housing, health and welfare,
and to the Wounded, Injured and Ill
Army Public Affairs Plans Officer
Ben Robinson was part of the team
which spent six months planning,
designing and implementing the site.
Mr Robinson said the new website
was Army’s public face and was the
most accurate way to tell Army’s
story in a modern and professional
“Its streamlined functions with
simple navigation make the site more
accessible as everyone can now go to
it and find the information sorted into
a logical order,” Mr Robinson said.
“Everyone can easily search, from
a student researching a subject such
as Anzac Day, to a serving military
member who needs to find the Army
Standing Orders for Dress the night
before a ceremonial parade.”
The web team used existing
internal expertise and resources in
developing the site, such as the Army
Learning and Production Centre
which helped produce the interactive
3D Soldier. Army also worked in
partnership with Diggerworks.
All videos linked to YouTube
can now be viewed on the Defence
Another member of the team,
Strategic Communications Adviser
Corinne Manning, said the website
allowed everyone in the world to see
what the modern Australian Army
was all about.
“It is our people telling our story
with one of the most powerful com-
munication tools available,” she said.
“Apart from seeing the historical
aspects of Anzac the site will help
people to understand the diversity of
jobs available and experiences of our
people in the military role.
“Another important aspect of
the site is to keep people informed
of the CA’s priorities and give him a
variety of forums to address what he
and Army wants to achieve into the
“It will inform people who we are,
what we are and what we do.”
