Three Australian small businesses have been awarded contracts through the Defence Innovation Hub to further develop their innovative technologies.

The contracts, totalling $584,000, demonstrate the commitment to involving Australian businesses, big and small, in meeting our Defence capability needs.

Adelaide-based company Mincham Aviation has been awarded a $272,000 contract to explore the development of a tube-launched unmanned aerial vehicle. The proposed innovation could allow operators to accurately deliver payloads from ships in adverse weather conditions.

A $44,000 contract awarded to Sydney-based Omega Dev Group will aim to develop facial protection that integrates with current Australian Defence Force protective equipment for use in training situations. This could provide a more realistic training environment while assuring the safety of Australian Defence Force personnel.

Melbourne-based Seer Security has been awarded a $268,000 contract to explore a data platform to strengthen Android application security.
