Our leading edge in defence technology
Research that enhances the safety of all Australian personnel and enables national defence systems to meet an increasingly complex security landscape.
The University of Melbourne is engaged in developing advanced defence technologies, including crossing and redefining the frontiers of human–machine interfaces, sensor technologies, advanced materials, medical countermeasures, enhanced human performance and autonomous systems.
Our commitment is to research that enhances the safety of all Australian personnel and enables national defence systems to meet an increasingly complex security landscape.
Our teams have the insight and experience to analyse technological challenges, conceptualise solutions and rigorously evaluate outcomes through simulation and prototype testing in advanced testing facilities.
Crucially, we work with our partners to deliver defence and industry-ready solutions to the most demanding technical requirements.
