Jun 9, 2022

In this episode of the Defence Connect podcast, DSTG’s Nigel McGinty, chief technology officer strategy and national security, and Robert Hunjet, acting research leader, protection and networked autonomy, join host Liam Garman to discuss the upcoming Australian Defence Science, Technology and Research (ADSTAR) Summit.

The trio begins the podcast discussing how ADSTAR will support the growth and development of Australian defence businesses, focusing on the key themes of:

  • Resilience in contested environments.
  • The use of artificial intelligence.
  • The use of human and defensive biotechnologies.

The trio then discusses ADSTAR’s “start-up alley”, and how the summit will give SMEs the opportunity to showcase their innovations.

The podcast wraps up discussing recent examples of when the DSTG has helped facilitate the growth of defence start-ups, with critical insight into how businesses can rise to the challenge of operating in the defence supply chain.
