Defence Innovation Network will invest $500,000 to develop a cutting-edge prototype in Cyber Terrain Mapping. The identified topic is selected in collaboration with Defence and aligns with the Defence priorities.
The Strategic Investment Initiative aims to deliver prototype within a 12-18 month timeframe, suitable for a ‘demonstration’ of the new capability of the integrated system.
The creation of such prototype is expected to enable a more straightforward commercialisation pathway, draw attention and interest from Defence and other companies and facilitate significant domestic investment through, for example, the Advanced Strategic Capabilities Accelerator.
Project proposals should be scoped within the following topic:
Proposals must demonstrate multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional collaboration. Projects must be led by DIN University with substantive inputs from at minimum two DIN universities in total.
Non-DIN member organisations are not eligible to receive funding through this program.
All project participants must be citizens of the Five Eyes Alliance (Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the United States) or NATO member countries.
Citizens of countries not covered by the named treaties are subject to approval by the DIN.
- Vision, Ambition & Innovation
- Leadership & Team Quality

The application form is available on request at email@example.com.
