With strengths in a range of defence relevant research fields, three world-class universities and Defence Science and Technology Group’s largest Australian operation, South Australia has a long history of success in collaborative defence research and development.
South Australia’s competitive business environment, combined with a strong Defence presence and a vibrant research and development ecosystem, makes our state the best place for defence innovation.
The Defence Innovation Partnership
, a collaborative initiative between state and federal government, industry and academia, is a catalyst for defence relevant research and development (R&D) in South Australia. The Partnership helps deliver innovative technologies and R&D solutions to Defence by creating connections between researchers, industry and Defence.
For more than 20 years, South Australian companies have been winning and delivering the nation’s most complex and dynamic defence projects. In addition to a network of leading multinational companies, South Australia also has a strong core of small to medium sized enterprises actively delivering specialist services and products to the Australian Defence Force and other Defence customers around the world.
