Intel on defence research

Defence Department agencies have $18m to fund research relevant to Intelligence Challenges and National Security Challenges

They’re capped because they are actual things, although knowing exactly what might be a pre-req for applications.

Whatever, the National Intelligence and Security Discovery Research Grants programme has up to $600 000 for a maximum of 12 projects over three years.

Applications will be managed by the Australian Research Council – a sure way to ensure that only people who need to know, know.

A new research and teaching partnership on the radar

Uni Adelaide will teach and research to support the Jindalee Operational Radar Network (as forward-looking as defence gets). Funding is not disclosed but the university will partner with Defence and BAE Systems.
