Western Australia’s Minister for Defence Issues Paul Papalia has called on the West Australian industry to support a new defence capability directory.

The new directory, known as the Western Australian Directory of Industrial Capabilities, is being independently conducted and is expected to be published early this year.

State industrial and innovation capabilities identified as relevant to military requirements outlined in the six Defence capability streams – intelligence and cyber, key enablers, land combat and amphibious warfare, strike and air combat, maritime and anti-submarine warfare, and air and sea lift.

The directory will be used by the state government’s Defence West and WA’s Defence Advocate Rear Admiral (Ret'd) Raydon Gates, AO, CSM, to market WA industrial and innovation capabilities to the Department of Defence’s capability development and procurement agencies, defence prime contractors and to international markets.

Businesses wishing to lodge an expression of interest for inclusion in the inaugural directory can register on the Defence West website.

The creation of the directory is an initiative of the Defence West office established by the West Australian government last May. Defence West is also working to establish a biennial Indian Ocean trade show in Perth to promote the state's capabilities.
