The state has a long history of success in defence research, underpinned by strong education and industry alliances.
Science and technology is identified in the Defence White Paper as a key enabler of the successful delivery and sustainment of the nation's enhanced defence capabilities.
Science and technology is also one of five focus areas in South Australia’s Defence Strategy 2025, with potential for significant growth and development. To that end, the state government is partnering with Defence and industry to build on our position as a centre of expertise for defence science and technology.
This work is concentrating on support for research, development and commercialisation of defence science and technologies through collaboration between our universities, industry, and the state and federal governments, particularly the significant Defence Science and Technology Group research divisions based at Edinburgh Defence Precinct.
