Australia’s defence industry has been called on to submit applications for inclusion in the 2018 edition of the Australian Military Sales Equipment Catalogue.
The 2018 catalogue follows on from the inaugural edition released in 2017.
“The inaugural edition of Defence’s Australian Military Sales Equipment Catalogue in February 2017 was a resounding success and, according to feedback, helped drive export opportunities for Australian defence industry," Minister for Defence Industry Christopher Pyne said.
"So I have expanded the scope of the catalogue and I’m encouraging Australian defence industry to once again participate in this important initiative.
"The focus of the 2018 catalogue will be to showcase and promote world-class Australian products."
The catalogue will have a large focus on exports.
"I want this catalogue to be the go-to guide in the hands of our Defence attachés overseas. I want it on the desk of every overseas defence minister. The more our friends and allies know about our fantastic defence industry, the better," the minister said.
Applicants will need to satisfy a number of criteria to be considered for entry, including:
- the company is Australian;
- the technology or service is Australian in origin and is used by Defence;
- the product promotes science, technology, engineering and mathematics in the design/build; and
- the product is export-ready.
Submissions will open from 26 October 2017 through to 30 November 2017.
