“I congratulate the University of Adelaide on its commitment to Defence research collaboration and for proactively setting up the tools and facilities for success,” he said.

“This initiative will make a vital contribution to research collaboration in support of Defence capability.”

Minister Pyne said the University of Adelaide sites will align to capability areas of Defence interest.

The first will be a laboratory for trusted autonomous systems and the institute for photonics and advanced sensing.

The university is also involved in projects for the Next Generation Technologies Fund, conducting 10 early stage research projects in areas relating to intelligence systems, trusted autonomy, autonomous tactical networks and unmanned vehicles.
