Defence Future Capability Technology Centre
DMTC was established in May 2008 as Australia’s first Defence Future Capability Technology Centre – a Federal Government initiative announced that was announced in the 2007 Defence and Industry Policy Statement and derived from the successful Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) model.
With the completion of the DFCTC contract in June 2015, the DMTC has transitioned to a new business model and an expanded role as an industrial capability partner under the 2016 Defence Industry Policy Statement.
