Australian Military Sales

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 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.

The Australian Defence Sales Catalogue (the Catalogue) has been showcasing a cross-section of products and services from Australian defence industry companies across every state and territory of Australia since 2017. The Catalogue also details some Australian Defence Force (ADF) surplus equipment available for sale under government-to-government arrangements.

The 2022 Catalogue will again showcase Australia’s world-class, defence industry sector’s innovative and leading-edge products and services that are available now for export.  

On 29 November 2021, the Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon Melissa Price MP announced the Australian Defence Export Office has developed an iOS and Android mobile app for the 2021 Australian Defence Sales Catalogue. This is now available for public download via your mobile device's app store. 

Please follow this link to take you through to the Web App for an interactive Australian Defence Sales Catalogue experience.

The 2022 application process has closed. Applications are assessed by the Department of Defence and all applications remain ‘commercial-in-confidence’.  

All applicants will be notified of the outcome of their applications for the 2022 Australian Defence Sales Catalogue in late January 2022.

Advice to foreign governments on surplus ADF equipment and defence industry products and services may be obtained by completing the Expression of Interest (PDF). This form is for foreign government use only.
