Abstract : Due to the high demand that has historically been placed on engineers by an amphibious landing force after it has deployed ashore, how Australian Army Engineers fit into Australia's Amphibious Concept must be established for the Australian Defence Force to successfully execute amphibious operations, prior to any future commitment. As the list of engineering tasks required to support the full spectrum of operations in the current and future operating environments is quite extensive, an ad hoc engineer group to support the Landing Force cannot simply be formed, nor is there a one-size-fits-all engineer solution. If Australia is to have a serious amphibious capability, the Australian Government and the Australian Defence Force must invest time, effort, and money to ensure that the Australian Army is capable of conducting engineering from the sea.
