Defence SA is proud to be the Dinner Sponsor for SubSTEC4.
South Australia has a proud history of delivering world-class defence projects. It is home to a critical mass of top scientific, research and educational institutions, a highly skilled workforce and state-of-the-art infrastructure. These factors, supported by Defence SA’s strong commitment to the defence industry, make South Australia - the Defence State. South Australia has set a clear direction for the future of defence - to grow Defence presence and build a sustainable defence industry.
The South Australian Government has invested over $300 million in state-owned infrastructure at Techport Australia to develop a world-class maritime industrial precinct. Already home to the $8 billion Air Warfare Destroyer project, the multi-billion dollar Collins Class submarine sustainment contract, and the confirmed consolidation site for the Future Submarine Project, Techport Australia is indisputably the nation’s premier naval shipbuilding hub.
