8 December 2017
Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP and Senator for the ACT Zed Seselja today announced Kord Defence would receive funding through the Defence Innovation Hub.
An innovation contract worth $635,000 with Canberra-based Kord Defence will seek to develop a wireless soldier control system using Bluetooth Low Energy technology that will connect with multiple electronic devices currently in use by the Australian Defence Force (ADF).
Minister Pyne said this innovation could provide improved situational awareness for soldiers in combat situations, linking together devices used for communications, sensors, and battlefield intelligence.
