Video of a female cadet at the Australian Defence Force Academy having sex with a fellow cadet has been broadcast to other students via a webcam in the latest sex scandal to hit defence.

The woman has told the Ten Network of the incident.

"I engaged with sexual intercourse with another first year at ADFA," she said.

The man had set up a live webcam, which others were watching, she said.

The unnamed woman said still photos were also taken.

“These were then distributed to other people,” she said.

“You see it on the TV and you read it in the papers that these things happen but until it happens to you, you don’t actually believe that these things happen.”

Academy chief Bruce Kafer said an investigation had begun.

“If the perpetrators or those alleged to have been involved are found guilty of a crime, this could result in termination of their military careers,” Commodore Kafer said.

Because the college is on Federal land the Federal Police will be involved in the investigation.

This is just the latest sex scandal to hit defence with the final investigation into the activities onboard HMAS Success recently finishing.

The report said a “predatory sexual culture” existed on the ship with senior sailors engaging in alcohol-fuelled public sex acts.

In recent weeks navy chief Russ Crane has warned if the culture does not improve he will introduce breath testing of all sailors in a bid to wipe out drunkenness.

“I don’t want to have to do this but it will occur if I continue to see instances of poor and inappropriate behaviour,” vice-admiral Crane said.
