Unlocking the Potential of Emerging Technologies.

Defence Innovation Network is excited to announce the launch of the Pilot Projects 2.0 program, an opportunity designed to empower the maturation and commercialisation of previously funded technologies within DIN’s Pilot Project program.

DIN Pilot Projects 2.0 aim to identify and fund completed Pilot Projects with the highest potential to evolve into commercial products or services. Through a robust and thorough TRL scheme, we aim to develop advanced prototypes, showcasing the technology’s readiness for the market.

Up to $200,000 will be provided for projects scoped for 12-18 months.


The Pilot Projects 2.0 scheme is open only to project teams that have previously received and successfully completed projects funded by the DIN Pilot Projects program.
