The Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC) supports Australian businesses entering or working in the defence industry.
Our advisers help businesses navigate the defence market, provide specialist advice on improving competitiveness and accessing global markets, and facilitate connections with other businesses and Defence. We also link Australian innovators and researchers to the Defence Innovation Hub and the Next Generation Technologies Fund.
With $200 billion being invested by Government to modernise defence capability, our task is to work with industry, Defence, and state and territory governments to build a world-class, globally competitive and sustainable Australian defence industry.
