“He wascharged with a number of offences which include two serious foreign incursion offences under the Commonwealth Criminal Code, which carry a maximum penalty of life imprisonment,” he said.

“With these offences, we will allege that he has utilised the internet to perform services for ISIL, activities in the Syria and Iraq conflict, from Australia in the following ways.

“Firstly, by researching and designing a laser warning device to help warn against incoming guided munitions used by coalition forces in Syria and Iraq. And secondly, we will also allege that he has been researching, designing and modelling systems to assist ISIL’s efforts to develop their own long-range guided missile capabilities.”

Mr Colvin said the AFP will be alleging that the material that he was intending to provide to ISIL, and the research he was doing, was credible.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the AFPoperation didnot relate to any planned terrorist attack in Australia.

“This AFP operation highlights thatterrorism, support for terrorist groups, and Islamist extremism is not limited to our major cities,” he said.
