The Australian Industry and Defence Network serves as the preeminent platform committed to enabling Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the defence sector of Australia to enhance their capabilities. Our organization’s objective is to facilitate the exchange of vital information, promote cooperation, and advocate for the concerns and welfare of our distinguished members.
We take pride in our role as a conduit for disseminating vital Australian Government and prime contractor defence and security-related policy and procurement information directly to our members. Aligned with the principle of unity, we advocate for our members by providing a unified perspective of Australian small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to defence prime contractors and federal and state/territorial governments, untainted by sectoral or federal interests.
The promotion of networking opportunities among defence industry organisations at the federal, state/territorial, and regional levels is the foundation of our organisation. By sustaining a collaborative ecosystem and maximising Australian industrial capacity and content in all contracts pertaining to defence and security, we aim to achieve this objective. By actively engaging in advocacy with federal, state, and territorial governments, prime contractors, and critical government departments, our objective is to optimise prospects for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Australia, establishing them as indispensable contributors to the security and defence of the nation.
Our commitment extends beyond advocacy and information dissemination; we provide our members with unparalleled networking opportunities, fostering collaboration at non-AIDN exhibitions and conferences. By uniting our members, we aim to amplify their collective capacity and capability, empowering them to better serve the Australian Defence Force.
