The US Department of Defense’s Comparative Technology Office (CTO) will meet with the Australian defence industry to assess capabilities for consideration in the Foreign Comparative Testing (FCT) program.

The FCT program tests items and technologies from the US' foreign allies that have a high technology readiness level in order to satisfy valid defence requirements quickly and economically.

The program seeks out world-leading technologies that will enhance military capabilities and provide long-term value to the Australian–US alliance.

The capabilities the CTO is focusing on are: Asymmetric Force Application, Electromagnetic Spectrum Agility, Autonomous Systems, and Information Operations and Analytics.

The CTO will be hosted by the Australian Department at Defence at Avalon 2017 in Geelong, Victoria from 28 February to 2 March 2017.

Submissions are due by 10 February.
