DEADLINE ALERT: DSTG seeks high-temperature materials expertise

The Defence Science and Technology Group (DSTG) is seeking innovative applied research proposals supporting development of high temperature structures and sub-assemblies and has issued a call through Melbourne-based DMTC Limited.

Proposals are due on 9 September 2022

The aim is to support the development of sovereign industrial capability that will be crucial to the construction of full-scale hypersonic platforms.

Australian industry, universities, and research organisations are invited to submit research proposals. The call for proposals aims to complement parallel efforts in the field and to focus on specific elements and sub-assembly knowledge. Its aim is to facilitate applied research that supports the design, fabrication and testing of critical sub-assemblies at a representative scale (TRL 5 to 6).

Outcomes from this program will support strategic aims of the Australian defence and national security community with regard to sovereign hypersonic materials and manufacturing capability.

Collaborations supported under this RFP will contribute to the body of knowledge in assembly of high temperature structures, as well as developing critical capability associated with larger scale fabrication.  Work of this nature will also highlight capability and infrastructure gaps to be filled in across the process of building a mature end-to-end capability.
