INDO PACIFIC 2022 INNOVATION PROGRAM

WELCOME

Welcome to the INDO PACIFIC 2022 Innovation Program. This exciting initiative is designed to encourage and reward defence innovation and export performance by Australian companies, research institutions and individuals.

The Innovation Program is driven by the AMDA Foundation’s altruistic purpose: to promote the development of Australia’s industrial, manufacturing and information/communications technology resources in the fields of aviation, aerospace, maritime, defence and security.

At INDO PACIFIC 2022 the Innovation Program will have two main thrusts: the Innovation Awards, and the Innovation Pitchfest.

Applications for the INDO PACIFIC 2022 Innovation Awards are now open.
Entries close at Close of Business, 1 March 2022.

INDO PACIFIC 2022 PITCHFEST

The Pitchfest is a very popular part of the Innovation program at each of our events. ‘Pitchers’ are selected from the Defence Science and Technology (DST) Group, Industry and the research and academic sector to deliver an elevator pitch to a mixed audience of potential partners, customers and venture capital funding sources.

The pitchers are trained to deliver a succinct and compelling presentation and prizes are awarded in three categories:

  • Best Overall Pitch
  • Best Overall Innovation
  • Most Relevant to the Maritime Domain


The Innovation Pitchfest is organised by the Defence Science Institute (DSI).
