On this episode of the Defence Connect podcast, host Phil Tarrant discusses the newly established Australian Maritime Development Centre with its interim chair Peter Davie, enterprise professor of defence technologies Dr Len Sciacca, and vice president for international development and cooperation at Naval Group, Francois Duthoit.
Recorded live at Pacific 2019, the conversation clarifies the centre’s mission and areas of focus, how it aims to instigate a shift towards a more collaborative culture amongst research and development entities, and the subsequent potential for enhancement of Australian capabilities.
