Almost simultaneously with the release of the SEA5012 Ph.1 RFI, the NSW Defence Innovation Network (DIN) is calling for collaborative research proposals addressing DST Group’s Remote Undersea Surveillance STaR Shot theme.
Through its Strategic Investment Initiative (SII), DIN will invest $500,000 in R&D to develop a cutting-edge prototype for defence use. The SII is funded by the NSW Government and DST’s NGTF.
Now that Remote Undersea Surveillance is a priority area for Defence Investment with an RFI on the streets, DIN has established the SII to enable multi-disciplinary research teams to produce innovative prototypes, create lasting links to the defence industry, catalyse commercialisation and trigger additional R&D investment in NSW.
A key objective is to build capability in the State by funding collaborative research that will enable a prototype to undertake a demonstration of of the integrated system’s new capability within 12-18 months.
Applications close on 6 August; the project is due to start on 1 January, 2022.
