MCLEAN, Va., Oct. 18 (UPI) -- A facility to help Australia's military develop, test and evaluate cybertechnologies is being built by Northrop Grumman.

The facility, for the University of New South Wales, will be located at the school's Canberra campus at the Australian Defense Force Academy in the National Capital Territory.

"We are proud to contribute our extensive cyber test range experience and capabilities to UNSW Canberra, at ADFA, and are looking forward to an enduring partnership," said Kathy Warden, vice president and general manager for Northrop Grumman's Cyber Intelligence division. "This award reaffirms our dedication to providing our allies with best-value cybersecurity solutions, and our commitment to science, technology, engineering and mathematics education."

The Australian Defense Force Academy is a partnership between the military and the university for personnel of all three services and for defense-related research.

In making the announcement, Northrop did not disclose the value of the contract, construction details or timeline.
