DEFENCE LAUNCHES QUICK GUIDE TO CAPABILITY AND TECHNOLOGY DEMONSTRATORS

 

 

Defence will today launch a quick guide to Capability and Technology Demonstrators (CTDs) on the Internet.

 

Head o f Defence’s Industry and Procurement Infrastructure Division, Dr Graham Kearns, said the electronic document sets out procedures and answers many of the questions put to him since the CTD program was expanded in June.

 

“The guide gives advice on preparing a submission, and provides contact details for people within Defence who are able to outline what should be included in a proposal,” he said.

 

“It also explains what happens after a proposal is lodged — a process we are streamlining.”

 

The Defence and Industry: Strategic Policy Statement highlighted the need for Defence to position itself to take advantage of future technologies.

 

“The guide identifies the type of proposals Defence is looking for from industry,” Dr Kearns said.

 

“We are seeking quality proposals which identify opportunities or resolve problems. They should be based on capability development priorities, and be capable of being funded by both Defence and industry .

 

The CTD program shows Australian Defence Force users how to quickly integrate leading-edge technology into existing, new or high-priority capabilities.

 

CTDs: A Quick Guide is available on the Industry and Procurement Infrastructure Division Website at http://iic.spirit.net.au
