• Linking industry with researchers to create vibrant and interlocking research and innovation that delivers game-changing capabilities for Defence

Australian Defence is on the eve of its most significant technological opportunity in modern history

Autonomous systems for air, land, sea, space, cyber and electromagnetic environments offer the potential to enhance Australia’s critical and scarce manned platforms and soldiers.

Realising this requires leaders in Defence, Industry, and Science and Technology with ambition and an appetite for risk in affecting high-impact and disruptive change.

A new era for the Australian defence industry

Who can participate in the Trusted Autonomous Systems Defence CRC?

Organisations can apply to become a participant in the Trusted Autonomous Systems Defence CRC to gain access to funding along with new opportunities for collaboration between defence, industry and research organisations.

We are committed to:

  • helping develop next generation technologies for Australia’s defence and national security sectors
  • increasing SME participation in collaborative research
  • enhancing and furthering the research skills and capabilities in the Australian defence industry
  • improving the competitiveness, productivity and sustainability of the Australian defence industry.

“Our focus as we move forward will be industry led projects with real translation opportunities to move technology rapidly from universities into industry and ultimately into leading edge capability for the Australian Defence Force.”

Jim McDowellChairman, Trusted Autonomous Systems Defence CRC

“The Defence CRC establishment is based on a sound formation plan developed by Chair Mr Jim McDowell, in collaboration with a panel of independent experienced experts from industry, academia, Defence and the UK Defence Science and Technology Laboratory.

I thank the panel for their expert advice in shaping the Defence CRC which will play a vital role in giving Defence a game-changing capability.”
