Defence Industry representatives are invited to attend a briefing by the Department of Defence on the future of Australia’s military training environment being developed through the Australia-Singapore Military Training Initiative (ASMTI). The ASMTI will see Singapore invest about $2 billion to jointly develop military training areas – expanding the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA) and establishing a new training area in North Queensland. Over the life of the Initiative there is an opportunity to deliver the foundations for technology-enabled training areas. The design of next generation training areas – amid the evolving character of conflict and rapid advances in technology – is being considered by the ASMTI. This includes the integration of space, cyber and information environments into the more traditional training environments of land, sea and air as well as the use of robotics and autonomous systems. Department of Defence officials will brief industry representatives on the broader ADF simulation context and the role of the ASMTI within this framework. Discussions will provide an opportunity for industry to identify potential opportunities and discuss developments with Defence, industry and higher education representatives. Who should attend? Industry representatives with a strong background in the design and development of defence training, training facilities and collective training technology are encouraged to attend. Due to limited numbers, one representative per organisation should attend. An addendum will be posted on the AusTender website when registration is full. Where: Rydges Capital Hill, Canberra Ave, Canberra When: 9:30am - 11:30am, 9 November 2018

Contracting directly with Defence is the domain of major primes. For a majority of industry, its pipeline to Defence work is through major programs and major primes. While much of the focus is rightly spent on future work, there are immediate requirements in local industry that can be addressed through continuous engagement. The small to medium enterprise (SMEs) have tremendous capability and innovative techniques for solving problems. In combination with each other, and through collaboration, the SMEs have the potential to solve the immediate challenges. The “Immediate Challenges Series” aims to bring these elements together. The primes experience the problems that the SME community has the potential to solve. The SME community can network with each other in shadows of the challenges presented, and in combination may able to grasp an opportunity that they couldn’t do alone.
