"Participants will see demonstrations of the latest military equipment, engage with Australian Defence Force personnel with recent operational experience, and visit Defence bases, and industry manufacturing and technology facilities," Minister Pyne said.

"This flagship course provides participants with the opportunity to learn firsthand the challenges and issues that influence our defence and industry sectors, including the workflow and planning processes of industry, and the impact Defence decisions and processes have on industry."

DISC and its predecessor, the Industrial Mobilisation Course, have been run annually by Defence since 1954.

One of the aims of the DISC is to strengthen relationships and networks between participants, in particular among Defence public servants, ADF members and industry executives. Nominations for DISC are highly competitive with industry participants selected to represent a number of sectors, states, territories and company size.

Applications are due for submission by 16 February online here.
