Seeking proposals for the Human Integrated Sensor System $3M Challenge

The Next Generation Technologies Fund (NGTF) seeks proposals to identify science and technology partnering opportunities in the area of Precision and Quantum Sensing.

Defence is seeking expressions of interest from Australian universities, research organisations and industry to join a community advisory group to help guide and shape research in the area of remote undersea surveillance.

Seeking members for Information Warfare Innovation Community.

D.Start Spark is looking for emerging and future technologies with the potential to provide game-changing capabilities for Australia's defence and national security.
