VIC | ADA: How to deliver Australian Sovereign capability on major Defence contracts

FACCI VIC Chapter first Aerospace-Defence-Aviation event was dedicated to the development of Australia’s Sovereign capability on upcoming major Defence programs.

We are delighted to announce that our FACCI’s first Aerospace-Defence-Aviation event was a success. The session was dedicated to the development of Australia’s Sovereign capability on upcoming major Defence programs. Attendees had the opportunity to hear from John O’Callaghan - Victoria Defence Advisor, who introduced the audience to Victoria’s priorities to grow the state’s defence industry and economy. Following John, representatives of Prime contractors and SMES, discussed in a panel discussion, their respective expectations, priorities, and their experiences, to improve the access across the Defence value chain and grow Australia’s sovereign capability. 

We were thrilled to have such a great selection of speakers being part of the discussion:

  • John O’Callaghan - Victoria Defence Advocate

  • Thomas Pfister - Regional Sales Director for Space & New Business, Airbus Australasia
