The Federal Liberal Government has awarded a $229,000 contract to a business in the electorate of Pearce, to develop cutting-edge technologies aimed at providing the Australian Defence Force with a capability edge.
Federal Member for Pearce Christian Porter congratulated Techventure Pty Ltd on receiving a contract under the Government’s Defence Innovation Hub, and thanked them for their contribution to Australia’s defence capability.
“This is just one example of how the Government’s record investment in Australia’s defence industry is creating jobs and new opportunities for local businesses,” Mr Porter said.
“Not only are we investing in next-generation technologies to keep our ADF members safe, but we’re giving Australian small businesses the opportunity to develop world-class capabilities which could be sought-after in a competitive, global market.”
Mr Porter encouraged local businesses and research organisations to submit innovation proposals through the Defence Innovation Portal at: www.business.gov.au/cdic
