New Tech Hub Established in Adelaide

South Australia’s defence and space credentials have attracted a global technology solutions company to the state as part of the South Australian Landing Pad Programme (SALP). The company, which is headquartered in Canberra and with offices in Hobart and Newcastle, provides integrated, multi-domain solutions, analytics and services across defence, space, clean energy and maritime sectors.

The SALP supports companies looking to make their first investment in South Australia, Australia or the Asia Pacific region. Companies that establish in the state are helping to stimulate the economy, create jobs, grow new industries and support existing ones.

The company will establish close relations in South Australia with defence supply chain partners and will also be able to develop relationships with machine learning, intelligence systems, space domain, defence and air services sectors.

The presence of the firm’s Australia branch in Adelaide will be the hub for the company’s ongoing cooperative development with the Defence, Science and Technology Group. The company also aims to develop relationships with organisations in areas such as machine learning, intelligence systems, space domain awareness collaboration, defence and air services.

The establishment of the new hub in the state will contribute to the growth of the defence and space sectors in South Australia. This move to the state will enable the company to have direct access to businesses working on defence and space projects, offering opportunities to support South Australian companies with research and development to help the state build sovereign capability.

The Vice President for South Australia at the firm’s Australia branch noted that the company’s new office in South Australia will enable further growth of its defence and space footprint. He added that the company has been introducing cutting-edge technologies, delivering radars, electronic warfare systems, electro-optronic devices and air traffic control equipment to customers in Australia for well over 50 years.

They aim to realise a significant increase in their South Australian presence over the next two to five years, including local jobs in project management, engineering, electrical systems, software development, data analysis and programming.

The SALP is a crucial conduit for companies looking to build a presence in South Australia, helping businesses find a foothold in a new place, embed in the local economy, create jobs and forge connections with local vendors, partners, customers and collaborators.

The programme is now available with the support of up to AU$ 100,000 over 12 months based on the business case presented. The South Australian Landing Pad offers support and assistance in the three key areas most important when establishing in a new jurisdiction, including:

  • Up to AU$ 40,000 to access our unique innovation and co-working hubs or alternative accommodation types
  • Up to AU$ 60,000 to access professional support and advice
  • Case management to help you navigate, network and participate in the local ecosystem.

The program welcomes all the stages of growth (except seed-stage companies):

  • Early-stage and scale-ups companies that have raised capital and are looking for a cost-effective environment to set up their business
  • SMEs with global customers, partners and often strong investor support looking to establish a presence in the Asia Pacific region
  • Larger companies would like to test a presence in a region before making a larger commitment.
