Australian Defence companies are reminded that industry submissions for the second edition of Defence’s Australian Military Sales Equipment Catalogue must be received by tomorrow, 30 November 2017.
Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP, said there was already high interest in the catalogue from all sectors of Australian defence industry.
“It is pleasing to see both small and medium-sized defence companies and primes across all states and territories have already submitted applications, all representing products and services from a diverse capability range.”
Minister Pyne reminded defence companies the guide will showcase and promote world class Australian products.
“As part of our national enterprise in defence industry, we want more Australian defence companies to be competitive in the global arena, so they can tender for international contracts and partake in global supply chains,” Minister Pyne said.
“I want this catalogue to be the go-to document for our Defence attaches overseas, and we want our friends and allies to have copies so they can see how great our Australian defence companies are.”
Applicants need to satisfy a number of criteria to be considered for entry, including:
- the company is Australian
- the technology or service is Australian in origin and is used by Defence
- the product promotes science, technology, engineering and mathematics in the design/build
- the product is export-ready.
