Research Network for Undersea Decision Superiority: Roadmap Workshop
Date: February 2018 - Friday 16 February 2018
Location: University of Technology, Sydney ,

Help contribute to the research agenda & investment plan for a new Research Network
Defence Science and Technology Group, as part of the Future Submarine Program Science and Technology Plan, is seeking to establish a long term research initiative to build world class research capabilities and capacities in Australian partner universities and leverage the significant skills, expertise, networks and infrastructure of Australia’s research base for sovereign benefit.

This initiative, the Research Network for Undersea Decision Superiority (the ‘Network’), focuses on the human element and will provide a mechanism to fund and oversee research projects that lead to improved decision making in the context of military operations in future submarines.

Enabling submariners to make the best decisions possible in a low information environment has been identified as an area of focus for research for improving future capability. As part of the process of setting up this Network, a research capability and capacity building exercise is being undertaken to facilitate the establishment of a consensus on long term needs and opportunities, as well as clear outcomes to guide the investment of resources.

Information sessions on the Network, followed by formal facilitated workshops, will be undertaken in February 2018 around the country to establish research themes leading to the desired capability. The Sydney workshop will occur on 16 February 2018.

We invite interested defence personnel, defence industry participants and academics from the 32 Australian Universities that are party to the Defence Science Partnering Deed to participate in a half day workshop to contribute to the development of the long term capability and capacity building research plan for the Network, and gain an understanding of the exciting long term research opportunities available in defence.

A wide range of scientific disciplines have the ability to contribute to providing solutions, ranging from exercise physiologists, ergonomists, workplace psychologists, nutritionists and biomedical scientists to integration engineers, human factors researchers and others.

This event is free to attend, however, numbers are limited so please ensure you register to attend this event. Moring tea and lunch will be provided.

Please contact the Network Project Director, Sharon Humphris (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) if you have any questions.

Since being appointed as a Major Service Provider to Defence’s Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG), Team Downer has been taking our SME Roadshow around Australia to meet with Small to Medium Enterprises (SME), and Small Businesses that are currently working in, or seeking to enter the Defence Sector.  The Team Downer consortium includes Downer Group, AGIS, DXC Technology, SYSTRA Scott Lister, Envista and Providence Consulting. Together, we have already established delivery teams in support of Major Integrated Work Partner contracts now in place, with just under 40% of that work being carried out by SME just like yours. This demand coming out of CASG is growing and we need to connect with you to help us deliver this work.   Team Downer is committed to involving Small to Medium Enterprise (SME) to deliver services and capability to Defence. That means connecting your business to Defence work into the future.  Our MSP model has been developed to build relationships with Australian Industry and give you a more stable and steady flow of Defence work to support your business in the long term. Team Downer is committed to extending this relationship by helping you develop your business and the capabilities of your valued people.   Team Downer extends you a warm invitation to our SME Engagement Roadshow in Sydney on 27 June 2018 designed to reach out to connect to you, the SME community. We invite you to talk to us about our objectives and how we can work together to equip and sustain the ADF with world-class capability. Roadshows will be conducted in conjunction with our affiliated partners including Australian Industry Defence Network (AIDN), Engineers Australia (EA), Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS), Project Management Institute (PMI), the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transportation Australia (CILTA) and other official professional bodies.
