The Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon Melissa Price MP, has released the Implementation Plans for the Advanced signal processing and Surveillance and intelligence Sovereign Industrial Capability Priorities.
The Implementation Plans were released alongside the Department of Defence’s detailed Industry Plans. Minister Price said that the implementation plans provide useful information to businesses who already operate with defence, and those who aspire to join the industry, to invest in a way that best supports the Australian defence force’s capability needs.
The latest Sovereign Industrial Capability Priority Implementation Plans outline the growing importance of the information and cyber domain in the modern battlespace.

The Advanced signal processing Plan covers the industrial capabilities required to design and develop tactical sensor technologies used to gather data, and the underpinning in-sensor analysis that occurs to manipulate this data.
The Surveillance and intelligence Plan highlights the requirement to integrate our sensor networks and share data across the Joint Force and with coalition partners to process raw data and information into actionable intelligence.
The released plans can be viewed on the Department of Defence website, along with more information on the Defence Industrial Capability Plan and Sovereign Industrial Capability Priorities.
You can also apply for a Sovereign Industrial Capability Priority Grant to help your business build industrial capabilities that contribute to one or more of the Sovereign Industrial Capability Priorities.
