In this episode of the Defence Connect podcast, host Liam Garman is joined by Shane Acorn and Daniel Pace, co-founders of the Invicta Prospects Group to discuss their new Buddy Suite AI solutions platform.

The trio begin the podcast discussing Acorn and Pace's service in the RAN as clearance divers, and how the pair initially developed the concept of the Buddy Suite to enhance their SOCOM training through digitisation and AI.

The podcast continues by looking into how the solution provides training and employee management services across four key service areas: Dive, Range, Bomb and Jump - and how working with the Defence Innovation Hub and Macquarie University Incubator has helped to build a more mature and integrable product.

The trio wrap up the podcast discussing Acorn and Pace's recent trip to promote the product in the United States, their selection for the Hacking 4 Allies program as well as future growth on the horizon.

Enjoy the podcast,

The Defence Connect team
