23 November 2018
News

Research proposals are invited from small businesses and universities to help Defence devise novel ways of integrating advanced materials onto military platforms.

Australia's Defence Science and Technology (DST) and the United Kingdom's Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) are collaborating on research to find innovative joining technologies that will provide Defence in both countries with enhanced capability through improved performance and increased durability.

The technologies may include new adhesives to improve longevity in body armour, new methods for producing graded material, or advanced processes for integrating new joining techniques into existing structures.

An information session will be held on Wednesday 28 November in central Melbourne.

This event will allow you to find out more about the call as well as meet the SBIRD team, technical experts from DST, front-line users and potential collaborators.

Please register for an entry ticket.

Applications will open on 28 November, 2018 and close on 1 February, 2019.

Further information is available SBIRD and DASA
