Project: Undetectable and Secure Connectivity for Autonomous Vehicles


Location: Remote
Duration: 3-months
Start Date: January 2022
Eligibility: AU Citizens and Permanent Residents
Scholarship: $10,000

About the Industry Partner

Innovations for Humanity (I4H) is a small NSW SME dedicated to the development of innovative Australian products. I4H was competitively selected by Lockheed Martin Australia to develop the White Paper on “Novel methods for reliable communications on an unstable platform” for the Australian Future Submarine Combat Integrator Program.


Project Objective

The aim of the project is to develop new “stealth” communication technology that can provide secure undetectable connectivity to various autonomous uncrewed vehicles and robots without being detected by radars.

An Intern will conduct a detailed assessment of this unique and confidential method. The main deliverable is a report on feasibility that would set the foundation for an NGTF-like large grant to develop the prototype.
