The Power of Collaboration

Sydney Aerospace & Defence Interest Group


OUR VISION:

To profile the capabilities of Sydney’s Aerospace and Defence Industry sectors for the purpose of generating connection to supply chain opportunities. Building the capabilities of non-defence industries to respond to Defence and Aerospace procurement opportunities.

OUR PURPOSE: 

We help our members to:

  • Be informed about events that may provide a platform for future business to business opportunities;
  • Be aware of potential funding opportunities;
  • Be alerted to relevant and up to date news that may provide insight to potential business opportunities;
  • Be aware of potential partnership opportunities.

In addition to our responsibility to members, SADIG’s role is to grow the capability of the Defence Industry through engagement with the non-defence industry sector in greater Sydney.

 

NOTICE FROM DEPARTMENT OF DEFENCE: As you are aware, the LAND 400 Phase 3 Australian Industry Capability roadshow was to visit your region over the coming weeks.   Due to the recent restrictions related to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the roadshow has now been suspended.  Over the past few days, the LAND 400 Phase 3 Project Office has contacted, or attempted to contact, each of the registered companies to advise of this update.   Defence, together with Hanwha Defense Australia and Rheinmetall Defence Australia, will continue the roadshow in your region when it is assessed as safe and appropriate to do so.

 

To date, Defence, Rheinmetall and Hanwha have met with 207 local small and medium enterprises across Victoria and Queensland to receive pitches on their business capabilities.  We have received positive feedback on the process from those that have been involved and have been overwhelmed by the range of capabilities that reside within Australia. 

 

Please monitor the LAND 400 Website for further updates, and refer any queries to LAND400Phase3.AIC@defence.gov.au. All registered companies will be contacted to reschedule when appropriate.
