New support

Increased funding along with the streamlining of some 35 disparate Defence support programs into two new structures (The Centre for Defence Industry Capability and Defence Innovation Hub) will drive innovation. Companies used to the previous programs will have to move quickly to understand the new structures, while preparing for new market entrants attracted by the increased funding.
