AVT Australia has signed the Soldier On Gold Pledge to provide support to veterans and their families.
In collaboration with the Soldier On Pathways Program, AVT Australia has increased its support to the veteran community by offering training, development and employment opportunities.
The transition from a military to civilian career can be challenging, according to Dale Heinken, AVT Australia president.
"As part of our commitment to the Australian Defence Force, we look to make this transition as easy as possible by providing exciting training and career development opportunities at AVT Australia,” Heinken said.
As a supplier of lightweight, gyro-stabilised imaging systems for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), and target acquisition operations, AVT has been recognised for its expertise in advanced engineering services. AVT Australia is a trusted supplier of imaging solutions for our Australian defence customers and international customers, with systems supporting airborne, ground, and maritime operations in over 50 countries.
AVT Australia is committed to serving the Australian Defence community in the design and development of world-leading ISR technology to deliver innovative capabilities to the future warfighter. With an ambition to strengthen Australian Sovereign Industrial Capability, AVT Australia focuses on a local supply chain by partnering with Australian companies.
According to Philipp Senn, chief technology officer at AVT, the company promotes a collaborative company culture, where employees are empowered to be the best version of themselves.
“As a Gold Pledge Partner, AVT Australia offers the veteran community opportunities to be part of a friendly, dynamic team,” Senn added.
“We are proud to join Soldier On as a Gold Pledge Partner.”
Soldier On provides a holistic model of support, focusing on health and wellbeing, employment support, learning and education programs, and participation and social connection.
