Northrop Grumman Australia has implemented a mentoring program for the winners of its inaugural Australian Tech and Innovation Showcase – Vai Photonics, Fortifyedge and Nominal Systems.

The showcase, presented by Northrop Grumman in collaboration with Bondi Partners, provides small and medium-sized Australian companies an opportunity to pitch their innovations in advanced autonomous technology, payload development and digital enterprise solutions to win an opportunity to enter a 12-month mentorship program with Northrop Grumman.

“The showcase is an excellent platform for Australian SMEs to demonstrate the advanced technologies this nation is capable of developing and exporting globally, as well as delivering to our Australian Defence Force and its allies,” said Christine Zeitz, general manager, Northrop Grumman Asia Pacific.

The winners of the showcase create a range of technologies developed in Australia that will be part of the next generation of Australian Defence systems.

Vai Photonics developed a light detection and ranging (LiDAR) sensor that measures vehicle velocity and combines that data with navigational systems to enable accurate navigation in environments where the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) is not available or accessible.
