The Australian-led International Stabilisation Force (ISF) in East Timor consists of Navy, Army and Air Force personnel from Australia and New Zealand. Operation ASTUTE is the military codename for the Australian contingent of the ISF.

The ISF operates at the invitation of the Government of East Timor, and in support of the United Nations (UN), to maintain stability and provide a secure environment for the ongoing development of East Timor.
