- Global market development opportunities - Effective networking on all levels - Links to the Primes/OEMs - Links to SMEs and Innovators - Export compliance and other technical support Australia is strengthening its Defence and National Security Sector to meet the challenges of the more complex strategic environment Australia is likely to face in the years ahead. Planning is underway for a more capable, agile and potent Sector that has greater capacity to respond to strategic risk and threats. ​ This Sector is seeking modern warfighting capabilities and critical enabling infrastructure. Australia’s Defence and National Security Sector has clear demand for critical industrial, scientific, technological and innovation capabilities and a national support base. Australia’s Defence Industry is essential to the operations of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and to the capability needed to protect Australia and its national interests. ​ Australia’s Defence Industry will therefore need to grow significantly over the next decade to meet the demands of a once in a generation recapitalisation of the equipment and systems of the ADF. In addition to the major warfighting capabilities the ADF needs, Australian Defence Industry also provides support and sustainment. This includes delivering the full spectrum of goods and services critical to enabling Defence capability such as logistic services, ICT, health support, fuel, energy and other support.
