Australias defence industry start-up ecosystem is steadily growing with a number of stand out performers designing, building and testing leading-edge capabilities. In this podcast, Robert Dane, CEO of OCIUS, and Daniel Dent, research and development projects manager, underwater systems, Thales Australia, join host Phil Tarrant to discuss the growing role of Australia’s defence industry start-ups in providing a fundamental input to capability.

Robert Dane, chief executive and founder of NSW business OCIUS Technology, and Daniel Dent, research and development projects manager, underwater systems, Thales Australia, join host Phil Tarrant to discuss the potential for unmanned surface vessels (USVs) in the defence space and how the technology is continuing to expand to play a key role in filling capability gaps.

During this podcast, Dane and Dent discuss the increasingly powerful role of autonomous systems like the OCIUS Bluebottle USV system will play in the future battlespace, as independent surveillance sensors for naval task groups and broader maritime surveillance operations. 

The pair will also briefly discuss how the autonomous data gathering and communications platform offers a unique solar sail, continuous and wide coverage, reduced operational costs and harvests all the weather on the ocean – the sun, the wind and the waves – so it can advance under all conditions and can remain at sea for months at a time.

Dane and Dent will focus on the maximising the use of the Defence Innovation Hub Grants and the role government support plays in helping the nation’s emerging defence industry start-ups transition their ideas from concept to implementation. 

Finally, Dane and Dent will discuss the role global prime Thales has played in helping bring its unique autonomous system and ASW capabilities to supporting the development of this next-generation capability package.
