Aircraft Research and Development Unit
The No.1 Aircraft Performance Unit was renamed the Aircraft Research and Development Unit on 22 August 1947. The unit relocated from Laverton in Victoria to the Royal Australian Air Force Base at Edinburgh in South Australia in 1976.
The Aircraft Research and Development Unit conducts development, testing and evaluation tasks on aircraft, aircraft weapons and associated systems, and provides electronic warfare operational support for the Royal Australian Air Force and other designated organisations.
