The Defence Industrial Capability Plan sets out a comprehensive plan for Australia’s defence industry. The Government is investing in our defence industry and ensuring that it is positioned to support delivery of the Integrated Investment Program over the next decade.
The Plan acknowledges that as Australia builds its defence capability, we must also grow our defence industrial capability. By 2028, Australia will require a larger, more capable and prepared Australian defence industry that has the resident skills, expertise, technology, intellectual property and infrastructure to:
enable the conduct of ADF operations today
support the acquisition, operation and sustainment of future defence capability; and provide the national support base for Defence to meet current needs and to surge if Australia’s strategic circumstances require it.
