ADF Searches for Bright Minds of Innovation


From 1 July 2022, the Government’s Defence Innovation Hub will seek submissions for innovations to strengthen specific defence capabilities in the areas of guided weapons and explosive ordnance, integrated air and missile defence, and undersea warfare.

Industry and research organisations will also be able to submit proposals across the domains outlined in the 2020 Force Structure Plan – Information and Cyber, Maritime, Air, Space, Land and enterprise wide enabling capabilities.

Minister for Defence Industry Melissa Price said the rapid pace of technological change and shifting geopolitical dynamics meant Defence’s innovation programs needed to be agile and responsive.

“Our strategic environment has changed and the importance of a resilient and innovative Australian defence industry is more critical than ever. These changes will ensure we can continue to leverage the very best innovation Australia has to offer and deliver a capability edge for Defence. We are investing more than $800 million in the Defence Innovation Hub through to 2030 and it is central to Defence’s response to current challenges.” Minister Price said.
