We gain and maintain this knowledge and understanding through our involvement in research and development programs across a broad spectrum of core and related topics.
In 2016 we formed a strategic alliance with the Defence Science and Technology Group (DST Group) that capitalises on the long-standing and deep partnership between our organisations and makes a commitment to collaborative Research and Development (R&D) in areas of strategic importance to the Australian Department of Defence.
Under this strategic alliance our current research projects cover topics including:
- composite structure lifting and integrity
- certification of additively manufactured parts
- use of graphene in corrosion preventative coatings.
We are committed to working in partnership with the Australian Government, academia and industry to invest in local R&D programs.
