Column Image of AIDN ActivitiesAIDN provides the focal point for Defence’s interaction with Australia’s dynamic base of smaller defence companies.

Through the National Secretariat, AIDN facilitates the effective and efficient communication between State bodies and Federal Government departments, in particular the Department of Defence. 

AIDN also represents member bodies on Department of Defence forums, including the Defence Exporters Council, and at relevant seminars and conferences. AIDN provides input on major policy initiatives and issues relating to all levels of Defence procurement.

AIDN is recognised by the Department of Defence as the voice of SMEs involved in the defence industry. 

Our focus is essentially on assisting SMEs to gain greater access to information, resources and key decision makers in the Defence industry in order to enhance their business success in this highly competitive arena.

Membership of AIDN is automatic when companies become members of the respective State/Territory Defence industry networks. For membership details contact your State network or the National Secretariat.
