Land FORCES 2022 Innovation

LAND FORCES 2022 INNOVATION AWARDS

The LAND FORCES 2022 Innovation Awards highlight and reward real-world defence related advances and new technologies from Australian and Australian-based companies.

For the award winners, the value of a Land Forces Innovation Award is as much about the exposure and awareness gained as for the two cash prizes awarded.

Previous awarded innovations have gone on to provide in-service capability for the Australian Defence Force and have often opened new export opportunities for their creators and Australian industry.

See the 2021 Land Forces Innovation Award winners:

The Awards are open to Australian companies or the Australian subsidiaries of overseas parent companies. The innovation could be a new product or service, or a new approach to business. Young innovators may be engineers, managers or early-career researchers working in industry, academia or a specialist research centre.

Entries are judged on the originality of the innovation, but also on the innovators’ understanding of user needs and the market relevance of their innovations.

The ideal award candidate:

  • provides a solution to a known problem, or an advance that will materially improve an existing process or capability; and,
  • is already at a development level that could see it fielded in a reasonable timeframe.

Awards will be presented in the following categories:

  • LAND FORCES 2022 National Innovation Award
  • LAND FORCES 2022 SME Innovation Award ($15,000)
  • LAND FORCES 2022 Young Innovator Award ($15,000)

2022 Awards Timeline:

  • Award Entries Open - Monday 4 July
  • Award Entries Close - Monday 8 August
  • Entries Shortlist Finalised – Tuesday 6 September
  • Awards Presented – Tuesday 4 October at LAND FORCES 2022

The AMDA Foundation Innovation Awards were launched in 2012. Since then, Australian companies and researchers have been presented with SME and Young Innovator Awards with a total value of more than $455,000 at the Indo Pacific International Maritime Exposition, the Land Forces International Land Defence Exposition and the Australian International Airshow and Aerospace & Defence Exposition (Avalon).
