Autonomous Warrior (AW) is the Royal Australian Navy’s (RAN’s) flagship program to demonstrate, evaluate and trial emerging Robotics, Autonomous Systems and Artificial Intelligence (RAS-AI) technologies at a variety of Technology Readiness Levels. AW events provide an opportunity to increase mutual understanding between Defence and industry in a realistic environment while fostering collaborative relationships.

AW will also conduct targeted demonstrations and displays, industry briefs and operator/maintainer engagement with RAS-AI manufacturers and designers. This process of co-design, bringing together RAN end users and industry, will underpin a program of learning by doing, continuous improvement and development.

This invitation to register is an open approach to market that will identify potential candidates to participate in one or more AW exercises at locations across Australia.
