Queensland Government has contributed to TAS to establish a Brisbane-based headquarters for the Centre, world class testing ranges, support research and technology projects, support industry to develop standards for autonomous systems and the development of platform technologies for unmanned aerial systems. Key Queensland strategies include the Queensland Defence Industries 10-Year Roadmap and Action Plan and the Queensland Drones Strategy.
In addition to the Defence Science & Technology Group (DSTG), TAS works closely with each Australian Defence Force service, including the Navy Warfare Innovation Branch, Army Robotic & Autonomous Systems Implementation & Coordination Office (RICO) and Dismounted Combat Program, the Air Force Plan Jericho and Air Warfare Centre, and the Defence AI Centre.
TAS has a range of members, participants, and strategic relationships. Projects are Industry-led and supported by world-leading researchers and sub-contracted partners.
TAS calculates the total full-time equivalent employment created in the current life of the Centre is nearly 250, including around 40 positions in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Maths (STEAM) pathways. A variety of highly regarded academic institutions are involved in the research.
