About us

The Human Terrain Group (HTG) began as a means to provide opportunities and employment to Veterans. We now deliver an enduring sovereign human terrain capability to our clients that is second to none.

We are committed to consolidating all of our collective skills, knowledge, and experience to provide an end-to-end solution for defence, law enforcement, emergency services, airlines & transportation, health, and private industry.

We recognised that the scale of required services for a complete human terrain capability is such that no individual company in Australia has the ability to fulfil this type of requirement in its entirety.


In order to successfully deliver human terrain services to our clients, a group of companies formed to cooperate and collaborate as a single entity: The Human Terrain Group (HTG), with the combined capabilities to support any project, production, activity, and scenario.
