Our mission 

To build a sustainable defence industry in Australia by helping members maximise their business potential.  We do this through advocacy, market information and assistance in the provision of relevant products and services for the defence and broader national security markets in Australia and overseas.

  • helping improve defence and industry engagement through regular member-only and other networking events and working groups with key Defence and Government decision makers
  • giving a voice to members by representing the concerns of business to Defence and Government at national defence industry advisory forums and through policy submissions, working groups, roundtables and direct engagement with Ministers and Defence executives
  • helping improve defence industry skills, cooperation and capability through regular workshops, the provision of training, and referrals to other members and consultants
  • Analysing Defence information to provide members with a better understanding of industry challenges and directions
