Systems and Cyber

As the nation’s centre of systems engineering, systems integration and defence electronics, South Australia has a proven track record of solving complex problems.

The state is a growing centre for defence-related cyber security. Defence Science and Technology's Cyber and Electronic Warfare Division is headquartered in Adelaide at the group’s facility in the Edinburgh Defence Precinct.

RAAF’s cyber security squadron, Number 462 Squadron, is based at RAAF Base Edinburgh, also within the precinct. No. 462 Squadron sits within the Information Warfare Wing of RAAF's Aerospace Operational Support Group.

South Australian companies specialising in cyber security include DXC Technology and Ebor Computing. Additional comapnies include Fivecast and NQRY which were a result of the highly successful Data to Decisions Cooperative Research Centre.  Our universities also encompass cyber security in their teaching and research programs. This includes Carnegie Mellon’s Software Engineering Institute Asia-Pacific, headquartered in Adelaide, which works to continually improve software-intensive systems.

The Australian Institute of Machine Learning (AIML) brings together researchers and industry to provide big data capability, which has the potential to make the nation safer and more secure.
