Defence SA is proud to sponsor the Wednesday Morning Session Break for SIA2018.
South Australia – The Defence State, is home to a critical mass of world-class industry delivering many of Defence’s largest and most complex projects.
Major defence companies across the maritime, aerospace, land, systems and cyber domains have their headquarters or significant operations in the state. A strong core of defence-related small-to-medium enterprises provide goods and services directly to Defence, and deliver into the supply chains of prime contractors in Australia and around the world.
South Australia is home to three defence precincts – Osborne Naval Shipbuilding Precinct, Edinburgh Defence Precinct and Technology Park Adelaide – along with some of Australia’s most significant defence testing, training and evaluation ranges. Each precinct is home to a range of innovative companies with extensive expertise in major defence projects, and are supported by specialised infrastructure.
Defence SA is South Australia’s lead government agency for all defence matters and the nation’s only standalone state defence organisation. With a focus to grow the state’s defence industry, the agency drives investment and expansion opportunities, supports the delivery of major projects, and pursues additional defence units and capabilities in the state.
Defence SA has a team of Defence and industry experts, providing a single point of contact for all defence stakeholders, dedicated to supporting growth in key defence and space industries by capitalising on the state’s existing strengths and expanding into future high-tech industries.
The agency is also heavily focused on supporting industry to participate in global supply chains, increasing the defence industry’s export capabilities and developing a highly skilled industry ready workforce.
