The Australian Industry & Defence Network (AIDN) is a national peak body, established in 1995, continues to support SME suppliers to Defence and Security related customers via advocacy, trusted partnerships and member services.

Through the AIDN Chapters in all states and territories of Australia, we work with SMEs to develop their sovereign organisational capacity and capability to reliably deliver goods and services that are fit for purpose and value for money, in support of the Australian Defence Forces, our national security personnel, as well as international allies.

AIDN aims to maximise defence and security related business for Australian SMEs by:

• Identifying and developing opportunities for SMEs to take part in Australian defence business opportunities and global supply chains as direct suppliers, individually and in groups, and via prime contractors;

• Providing advocacy services for its membership to and from Defence, federal and state government and industry, and representation on government industry forums in the defence sector;

• Developing the skills base of its membership, including through initiatives which utilise government assistance;

• Providing a searchable National Database of member capabilities;

• Contribute to workforce planning; and links industry with federal and state/territory government programs in skills training, innovation, technology and asset development, specialisation, and export readiness; and

• Supporting and participating in domestic and overseas conferences, seminars and trade shows to showcase member capabilities.

With a combined membership of over 800 companies across the State and Territory chapters, AIDN works closely with the Chapter representatives to ensure that AIDN’s direction, effort and outcomes are informed by a full range of

industry views from the Chapters. Keep up to date with the latest AIDN events and industry information at www.linkedin.com/company/aidn
