The Department of Defence via the Defence Innovation Hub (Defence) is seeking innovation proposals that will assist Defence in developing a Soldier Personal Area Network (SPAN) that connects the soldier to current and future systems and communication networks – a Network Centric Soldier.
For geographically dispersed soldiers and commanders, the ability to fuse multiple sensor data feeds and exchange information through a useful interface is challenging. At the first Australia-Israel Defence Industry Cooperation Joint Working Group* held on 9 July 2018, both the Australian Department of Defence (ADOD) and the Israeli Ministry of Defense (IMOD) identified this shared capability challenge and the need for innovative solutions.
In responding to this Special Notice, Respondents should note that this is a capability challenge shared by both the Australian Defence Force and the Israeli Defense Force. Respondents are encouraged to think creatively about ways in which they may be able to address this shared capability challenge, including potential opportunities for collaboration with other entities in order to meet the needs of both the ADOD and the IMOD.
Proposed schedule is to conduct user trials and evaluations in relation to the proposed innovation, in Australian Army units within 12 months of AID18
