The Special Air Service Regiment, officially abbreviated SASR but commonly known as the SAS, is a special forces unit of the Australian Army. While it is modelled on the British SAS, with which it shares the motto "Who Dares Wins", the regiment also draws on the experience of World War II Australian special reconnaissance and commando units, particularly Z Special Unit (Z Force/SRD). It is based at Campbell Barracks, in Swanbourne, a suburb of Perth, Western Australia. The SASR is widely regarded as an elite unit.

The SASR currently has three sabre squadrons, known as 1 Squadron, 2 Squadron and 3 Squadron. These squadrons rotate in turn through the two roles performed by the SASR. One squadron maintains the counter terrorism role, and the remaining two squadrons maintain the surveillance and reconnaissance role. On operations each squadron is supported by a troop from 152 Signal Squadron.
