Chief of Army Welcome

Chief of Army Chief of Army

Welcome to this year’s Chief of Army Symposium (CAS), held in conjunction with Land Forces 2024 International Land Defence Exposition.

As a key supporter of Land Forces, the Australian Army is proud to host CAS 2024 on Thursday 12 September. The event is open to all Land Forces attendees.

The CAS 2024 program aims to facilitate meaningful information exchange and foster a dynamic contest of ideas that challenges us to think differently.

The Australian Army will also host the Army Innovation Day (AID) and Quantum Technology Challenge (QTC) Expositions over the first two days of Land Forces. These expos will showcase innovative concepts addressing current and future operational challenges and are open to all event attendees.

I encourage you to explore and engage with the impressive exhibitors involved in the AID and QTC Expos.
I look forward to joining you at Land Forces 2024 and welcoming you to CAS 2024.

Chief of Army Symposium (CAS)

For the first time, the Chief of Army Symposium (CAS 2024) is open to all Land Forces attendees.

CAS 2024 is the Chief of Army’s capstone event, to engage his people, partner forces and allies, defence industry, and academia and research organisations.

The theme for the symposium is ‘The Human Face of Battle’. Amidst ever-changing strategic circumstances, humans remain enduring, they are at the centre of everything we do.

The Human Face of Battle will shape the presentations and panel discussions held during the symposium. Hear from Defence leaders and distinguished thinkers as they explore the evolution of the profession of arms.
Attending the symposium is your opportunity to hear direct from the Australian Army.

PLEASE NOTE: While attendance to this session is free for all participants, entry is not guaranteed. Seating will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, and once the venue reaches its maximum capacity, access will be closed.

Quantum Technology Challenge (QTC)

Quantum Technology Challenge (QTC)

Quantum Technology Challenge

QTC sees Australia’s best quantum thinkers competing to demonstrate how quantum technologies can solve critical Army problems and deliver unprecedented capabilities.

Quantum technology doesn’t provide new weapons or redefine systems. Instead, it exploits the fundamental laws of nature and has presented Army with unprecedented capabilities in the three key areas of:

  • sensing and imaging
  • communications and cryptography
  • computing and simulation.

QTC demonstrates Army’s commitment to developing defence industry and academia technologies, to prepare new quantum technologies for transition into capability for land force.

Details regarding the QTC 2024 Challenge will be released shortly.
