This Week’s Highlight: Future Soldier Concepts

The kit for an Army soldier has come a long way since the Anzacs! Not only is there advancements in traditional elements such as boots and camouflage face paint, the data that is now available to a soldier in the field is unlike any other era and advancements in this space continue. This week we look at an opportunity for industry to participate in the DEF(AUST) Generic Soldier Architecture, Industry Working Group.

This opportunity is seeking expressions of interest from qualified members of industry with an interest in participating in an Engineering Working Group which will contribute to defining Data Interface Standards for Australian soldiers. Specifically, Defence is seeking input from individuals and organisations who have expertise in software engineering, computer engineering, mechatronic engineering, dismounted soldier systems and emerging technologies. The aim is to enhance soldier operational effectiveness via integrated, adaptable and affordable electronic soldier system infrastructure requirements. These requirements will then contribute to the development of a standard set of interface requirements that will define the Generic Soldier Architecture.

This is an Expression of Interest (EOI) and as such does not directly link to any follow on procurement process nor preference your organisation in any follow on procurements. However, it allows you to influence the final outcome which may have benefits to your organisation in the long run.

The EOI closes on 21st May 2020 with the aim for documentation to be released to Respondents for Collaborative online discussions to commence on Monday 8th June 2020.
