The only way we can rapidly incorporate evolving technology into the force at speed is by working earlier and closer with Australian industry and academia. Our constant capability development cycle brings in the minds and skills of internal and external partners to inform our future capabilities in a much deeper way.
These Air and Space Capability Flagship Programs demonstrate how we test concepts in parallel with developing workforce skills and gaining practical experience in AI and teaming concepts. These programs allow us to trial digital twin approaches to speed up capability development, by creating realistic synthetic environments to design, test, train and run mission simulations. Digital twins will become increasingly integral to rapid capability development.
