AIDN (Australian Industry & Defence Network)

is proud to announce we are the winner for the

Defence Connect Awards for

Industry Association of the Year 2020!

Our Mission

The AIDN National Mission is to maximise opportunities for Australian defence industry in the Defence and National Security Sectors.

AIDN provides the focal point for Defence's interaction with Australia's dynamic base of smaller defence companies.

AIDN functions through a National Secretariat and facilitates effective and efficient communications between State bodies and Federal Government Departments, in particular the Department of Defence and the Department of Industry, Science and Resources. AIDN also represents member bodies on Department of Defence fora and at relevant seminars. Importantly, AIDN represents the SME perspective in the development of Defence Industry Policy and can mediate or assist in resolving Industry/Government misunderstandings.

Core Strategies

Advocacy: AIDN National, through understanding the National industry’s view, will represent SMEs by providing a “Voice” for their issues and concerns and promoting members capabilities.

Representation: AIDN National will provide leadership and build and maintain key partnerships at local, national and international level, through influencing national policy and strategy and maintaining key relationships with political and Government decision makers.

Member Services: AIDN National, acting as a central point of coordination, will service its chapters and their members through providing relevant information and awareness on the defence and security environments, opportunities for collaboration and engagement and Governance oversight.
