The South Australian government has a clear vision for the future of defence in the state – to drive sustainable defence industry growth and attract additional Department of Defence activity.

South Australia’s Defence Strategy 2025 is the roadmap guiding the state’s efforts to achieve this vision, as well as the specific defence targets in South Australia’s Strategic Plan: 37,000 jobs and an annual economic contribution of $2.5 billion by 2020.

Over the next decade, South Australia is committed to partnering with Defence, industry and academia to capitalise on the state’s existing strengths and identify new opportunities for growth.

Defence SA developed South Australia’s Defence Strategy 2025 under the guidance of the Defence SA Advisory Board and in close consultation with Defence and industry.

It recognises that Defence and industry will drive growth, with the South Australian government playing a key support role through effective advocacy – investing in strategic infrastructure, education, training and research and development – and fostering a competitive business environment.

It proposes clear outcomes across five sectors:

Maritime – to cement South Australia’s status as a national centre of complex warship and submarine build and sustainment;

Systems and Cyber – to establish South Australia as a centre of expertise for electronic and information systems;

Aerospace – to position South Australia as a national hub for airborne maritime surveillance and weapons system test and evaluation;

Land – to build on South Australia’s reputation as a centre for military vehicles and integration of combat systems; and

Science and Technology – to advance South Australia as a centre of expertise for defence science and technology.

South Australia is well on the way to achieving its objectives with the appointment of the Minister for Defence Industry Christopher Pyne, a South Australian – and the establishment of the CDIC and Innovation Hub, both headquartered in Adelaide.
