This Week's Highlight - Army Research Opportunity

The Australian Army Research Centre has issued an opportunity for researchers to undertake paid research on topics that will inform future land force development and modernisation. To be eligible to apply for the Army Research Scheme, you must one of the following criteria:

a. have current or prior service in a military organisation

b. have an affiliation with an academic institution or think tank

c. be a registered business or institution that specialises in rigorous academic research or strategic consultancy.

The topic areas are fairly broad and include responses to the following questions:

Question 1: How will Australia’s land forces conduct future joint land combat to win wars?

Question 2: What is the best use of land forces to promote Australian regional and global interests?

Question 3: How will social, cultural, demographic and/or economic change affect the Australian Army and its ability to defend the nation?

Question 4: How can Army build its intellectual capital and develop its culture to be best positioned for an ambiguous future?

Question 5: What are the limitations and opportunities of human machine teaming for land combat in 2030?

Question 6: If political warfare arises from the nature of the State and its conception of war, what are the future implications for Australia?

The upper limit for funding individual proposals through the Army Research Scheme is $80,000, and it is important to note that only research whose deliverables are conceptual in nature will be funded. For example, proposals that seek to develop a new or enhanced technology will not be funded – only the conceptual application of such technologies will be considered. Applications close 27 Aug 19.
