The Defence Materials Technology Centre will work with the Department of Defence (DoD) to develop and enhance Australian industry capabilities in support of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) Program.

Minister for Defence Industry Christopher Pyne made the announcement and said that with more than 3,000 F-35 aircraft planned for production globally over the next 25 years, there were many opportunities for Australian industry to compete for work.

"There are opportunities for companies to participate in both the production of new aircraft, and the regional allocations of sustainment work for in-service fleets," Minister Pyne said.

"Indeed, there are already many success stories in relation to Australian industry making its mark in the production phase with more than 30 companies successfully partaking in $800 million of work so far.

"These complex military platforms are providing opportunities for Australia’s smartest minds to contribute to the global ‘learning curve’ and to technology development."

DMTC will take proposals from industry and research organisations and work with DoD to identify industry capabilities and innovation opportunities that will be targeted for further development.

"Some of the potential opportunities for development that have been identified to date include additive manufacturing, titanium machining, structural health monitoring, corrosion monitoring and control and composite repair," said Minister Pyne.

DMTC is a key partner for the Defence Innovation Hub, which was launched in 2016 and will invest around $640 million into defence innovation development over the next decade.

DMTC’s call for expressions of interest from prospective industry and research partners is open until 13 April 2017. Documentation is available here.
