About us.

JHA was founded in 2001 and since then has grown to become a trusted name in the provision of secure military and government communications solutions to the Australian and New Zealand Defence Forces and other Federal Government customers with a defined need for secure communication products.

The company is owned and managed by Peter White who has over 30 years experience in secure military communication environments both as an Australian Army RASignals Corps Officer and as a Defence industry supplier and consultant.

Our experience, backed by the proven quality of some of the world’s largest and most innovative Defence suppliers including General Dynamics, Analog Devices and Datakey, ensures our customers have secure communication solutions that perform under the mission-critical demands of both strategic and operational environments.


Peter White spent 14 years in the Australian Army after graduating from RMC Duntroon to the Royal Australian Corps of Signals.  In that time he gained an excellent understanding of military Information Communications Technologies (ICT) across strategic, fixed and tactical mobile systems. Peter spent two years working  with the US Army as the Brigade Satellite Engineer at 11th Signal Brigade, Fort Huachuca, Arizona.

After leaving the Army Peter worked with Optus, a leading telecommunications provider in Asia Pacific as an Account Manager and Strategic Account Manager for the Australian Federal Government, specifically responsible for Defence and Intelligence Agencies. In that time he visited East Timor to coordinate the implementation of Welfare Communications for INTERFET and UNTAET troops and he was specifically responsible for developing and implementing a wide range of ICT projects for Australian Department of Defence and Intelligence Agencies.

Peter has a proven track record in devising and implementing ICT infrastructure and systems to meet a large organisation’s requirements. Peter has been responsible for the development and delivery of ICT products, services and software to support large scale and time critical strategic and operational capabilities for a number of Federal Government Agencies. He has a very deep understanding of the environments into which our products are deployed and has hands-on experience solving complex communication challenges.
