1 x 3 CSR patch.
The 3rd Combat Signal Regiment provides high readiness communication capabilities to 3rd Brigade, and specified operations, in order to enable the conduct of full spectrum complex war fighting operations. 3 CSR is based at Lavarack Barracks, Townsville Structurally, 3 CSR comprises three squadrons: two Signal Squadrons (102 and 103 Signal Squadron) and an Operational Support Squadron, in addition to the Regimental Headquarters. In order to effectively support Army’s only rapidly deployable multi-role light brigade, C2 is effected through the use of wide band satellite, phone services through the Public Switched Telephone Network connected to the Defence Voice Network, Video Teleconferencing, Deployable Defence Restricted and Secret Networks, and Line Of Sight and Beyond Line Of Sight Combat Net Radio (CNR). Furthermore, 3 CSR provides the Comd 3 Bde with a rapidly deployable narrow band service, allowing for access to strategic services on a smaller scale when manoeuvring around the battle field.
