Minister Price said the company is seeking to develop technology to integrate Defence’s logistics information system with modular distribution and magnetic location tags and sensors.

“This $3.3 million Defence Innovation Hub contract with Defence will allow ECLIPS to develop next-generation technology which could have a significant impact on Army’s capability,” Minister Price said.

“Empowering small businesses around Australia to be part of the record build-up of our defence industry means we can take advantage of their innovative and entrepreneurial nature.”

“That’s why we’re investing $640 million in the Defence Innovation Hub and why we’ve seen 85 per cent of the contracts awarded so far go to small businesses just like ECLIPS.”

ECLIPS is one of 61 small businesses showing off their capabilities at the major DSEI tradeshow as part of Team Defence Australia.

Senator for the ACT, Zed Seselja, said he was pleased to see a local company representing Australia’s defence industry in London and congratulated them on their latest success.

“Defence industry is a growing sector in the ACT, and it is fantastic to see Canberra businesses being recognised for their innovation on the world stage,” Senator Seselja said.
