AIDN weighs in on sovereign capabilities debate

defence industry sovereign capabilities

Australian Industry & Defence Network (AIDN) has thrown its support behind proposals put forward by BAE Systems Australia CEO Glynn Phillips in relation to Sovereign Industrial Capability (SIC).

President of AIDN Alan Rankins said the ideas about SIC outlined by Mr Phillips at a conference in Canberra are in line with AIDN's but went further by suggesting SIC must be included in future defence projects.

"[The] best way to ensure relevant SIC is sustained will be by including it as mandatory in Australian Industry Capability (AIC) plans for all Defence major projects," said Rankins.

Rankins also said that AIC must go further than just SIC and must also include all relevant parts of the Defence Industrial Capabilty Plan (DICP) being developed by Defence and the Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC) and offered a suggestion should this not be successful.

"If such AIC plans still fail to deliver Australian content of at least 75 per cent of the value of projects including the first five years of through-life support, then they should be further supplemented by Australian Industry Participation Plans (AIPP) to reach 75 per cent.

"AIPP would include further parts of the DICP not already included and innovation proposals of direct relevance to project."

Mr Rankins also supported the work already being done by government, Defence and the CDIC and looks forward to working with them to achieve the best outcomes for Defence and industry.
