Part of Air Force’s Plan Jericho is to better partner with Industry as a fundamental input to capability (FIC), supporting Air Force’s transformation to become the world’s first fifth generation Air Force.    Plan Jericho is engaging with both traditional and non-traditional Industry; to strengthen relationships, identify the requirements of the future Air Force, and enhance understanding of Australian industry capabilities.   

Penten, DefendTex and Daronmont Technologies are Defence Industry SME and have been part of the engagement that Jericho has been embarked on over the last three years and will continue to foster into the future.   Growing Australian Defence Industries is part of Defence Industry Policy Statement articulated in the 2016 Defence White Paper policy, and more recently in the Defence Export Strategy. 

The Sir Richard Williams Foundation is pleased to host  three of the outstanding companies engaged with Plan Jericho and hear from them how their companies exemplify innovation and provide opportunity for the future as Fundamental Input to Defence Capability.
