Defence needs a technologically-advanced air combat capability that is fully integrated with supporting intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (ISR) and supporting systems.

DMTC and its partners are working to build Australian industry capability to capitalise on new technology horizons across the air and space domains. The span of this effort covers new technology developments as well as advances in the use of existing additive manufacturing technologies and techniques.

DMTC’s work is focused on building the underlying capacity and competitiveness of Australia’s national industrial base. Working with new manufacturing techniques and new materials involves a progression through identifying, understanding, enhancing and then certifying them to meet the demand of our Defence customer for high integrity, high value and high performing components.
