We promote independent and innovative thinking to enhance Australia’s integrated 

 5th Generation force  capability. 

Through our events & programs, we connect a wide network of practitioners, experts and academics to forge new ideas for future military force design with a networked edge.


Informed discussion and debate about force design issues affecting Australia - presented by emerging thought-leaders in the field.

Our events attract an influential cross-section of military and industry practitioners, policy makers and academics - and cover critical issues central to Australia's future Defence capability challenges
