Collaboration a driver for success
The JORN Phase 6 upgrade is supported by a large network of more than 110 Australian suppliers, including indigenous suppliers and local SMEs.
Collaboration with partners in defence, government, industry and academia has underpinned the world-leading approach in delivering a truly sovereign capability.
Partnering with academia is an important part of engaging talented and skilled students early, funding teaching programs and growing research centres for new technology development. Our partnership with DSTG, defence and the University of Adelaide to launch the JORN Open Innovation Network will accelerate this approach.
Red Ochre Labs, our hub for disruptive technology and early product development, also presents significant opportunity for further research and development into keeping JORN at the forefront of high frequency technology and ensuring the continued development of this critical sovereign capability.
Having the ability to do some of that research and development alongside key defence, industry and academic partners will keep JORN, and our technology more broadly, at the cutting edge and delivering for our defence force.
