The role of the Australian Military Sales (AMS) team is to support Australian sovereign capability and military sales programs through the planning and execution of international government-to-government transfer of:

  • Australian Defence Organisation materiel
  • Australian-origin sensitive technology
  • products and services of Australian defence industry.

AMS seeks expressions of interest from foreign governments for consideration for government-to-government transfers.

Australian Military Sales benefits

AMS supports Australian defence industry to export leading-edge capability solutions to foreign government customers.

By leveraging relationships across the military diplomatic community, AMS provides opportunities for Australian defence industry to utilise Defence’s network of national and international military partners to identify sales opportunities thereby improving and enhancing the promotion and export of products and capabilities.
