DEFERRED until OCTOBER 2021
From the D+I Conference Team
Due to the ongoing COVID pandemic and the current restrictions in place across a large portion of Australia, a decision has been made to defer the D+I Conference and Awards scheduled for July 2021.
The team are busy working to confirm arrangements for the new D+I dates during the first week of October 2021 (5-7 October).
Please put these new dates in your diary and keep your eye out for any updates as the program firms up and the website opens for registrations.
We appreciate your patience and understanding of this change and we look forward to seeing you back in the Nation’s Capital for D+I 2021 in October.
Was planned for 28-29 July 2021, the D+I Conference and Awards have been postponed and will be back soon (hopefully as a physical event at the National Convention Centre in Canberra).
We’ve returned to the winning formula for the D+I Conference, with a mix of Defence and industry presenters and keeping delegates in control through live questioning during our Q&A sessions. We’re working hard to secure all of our speakers and finalise the reinvigorated program that will include some short and sharp presentations about key topics. The draft program is attached.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our previous D+I Awards Corporate Supporters and we’re happy to announce that the 2021 packages have been finalised and are attached. The packages have always been very popular and but are very limited so get in quick to avoid disappointment!
This year we have a fantastic line-up of projects to showcase at the D+I Awards and we’re looking forward to announcing the winners of the inaugural Minister for Defence Industry Australian Industry Capability Award Program and the Defence Industry Service Commendation!
We’ll also have a military band on hand to entertain us, and our menu will again incorporate the best ingredients the Canberra region has to offer.
We look forward to seeing you back in the Nation’s Capital at D+I.
Program also attached.

We have planned to have the 2 session day full of Defence Briefings and Networking opportunities.
Defence Networking Events are critical to your progress in the Defence Industry.
This event brings people together from all around Australia for a fantastic day of networking set amongst an amazing backdrop with morning tea and lunch briefings, as well as a golf competition and then a dinner networking session as well.
You can book in for the full day or join for a half day... but it is an event not to be missed!
Speakers and sponsors are being coordinated now with some very senior stakeholders in Government, Defence and Industry Primes who will provide updates for the year ahead.
We understand that Golf is not everyone's "cup of tea", however the focus is not on golf - but on the networking that happens in the other 6 hours and also the 4 hours on the golf course.
The golf competition is an Ambrose competition, which is played in such a way that all skill levels are catered for and everyone has fun (even if you really can't hit a golf ball!).
Medway Golf Club, 57 Omar Street, Maidstone VIC 3012
TBA, postponed from Friday 25th June 2021 = new date coming very soon... stay tuned for updates!

The RAS-AI Directorate (Director CAPT Nicholas Trongale) is currently developing a campaign plan for adoption and integration of RAS-AI systems within the Navy, following the release of Navy’s RAS-AI Strategy 2040 last year. RAND is conducting research in support of the development of the campaign plan, on topics including innovation, technology and workforce.
The strategy has emphasised the importance of partnerships with industry and academia, and the aim of this survey is to gather input from industry so Navy can better understand how to engage and improve cooperation going forward.
Attached is a survey to get feedback from industry to include in the development of the plan.
A 5th Generation Navy enabling the Joint Force to fight and win at, and from, the sea
The purpose of any RAS Strategy is to set the path to realising a RAS enabled future capability that can rapidly deploy, concentrate at a point of effort and disperse to survive – through a robust and resilient network, leveraging superior decision-making to win in future conflict that can utilise game changing technology.
