Centre for Defence Industry Capability

The Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC) supports Australian businesses entering or working in the defence industry. The CDIC:

  • helps businesses navigate the defence market
  • provides specialist advice on improving competitiveness and accessing global markets
  • facilitates connections between businesses and Defence
  • links Australian innovators and researchers to the Defence Innovation Hub and the Next Generation Technologies Fund
  • undertakes sector-wide projects to support industry development.

The CDIC is headquartered in Adelaide, with advisers and facilitators across all the states and territories to form a national advisory network. They are supported by AusIndustry's outreach network, which extends the CDIC's reach to regional areas.

The CDIC's mission is to work with industry and Defence to build a world-class, globally competitive and sustainable Australian industry as a Fundamental Input to Capability. It partners with industry, Defence, and state and territory governments to combine knowledge and networks towards this goal.
