Coastal surveillance – Adelaide is a long way from the usual attempted points of entry of illegal immigrants. Darwin would have been the logical base. Or are they being controlled from Pine Gap, perhaps for undisclosed purposes?

“monitoring energy infrastructure” – Illegal fishing is a real problem but, again, does the end justify the costs?

Is there some other motivation, I ask?
