Aero Defence on DISC 2015
During 2015 our Business Development Manager Darren Baber was able to participate in the 2015 Defence Industry Study Course (DISC) across a number of weeks visiting various Defence bases and industry sites.This included attending Exercise Talisman Sabre to see how Australian capability is utilized on land operations, observing KC-30A refueling operations mid-flight, at-sea exercises on an Anzac class frigate and walkthroughs of Australia’s new Air Warfare Destroyer.
The Defence and Industry Study Course (DISC) and its predecessor, the Industrial Mobilisation Course, have been run annually by Defence for more than 50 years. The DISC has been designed to help participants develop a better understanding of both Defence and industry in order to improve Australia's Defence industry capabilities.
The course doesn’t just primarily focus on the military operating environment and a key part of the course is the industry engagement with suppliers and manufactures that help innovate and deliver the world class capability which is the Australian Defence Force. Airbus, Thales Underwater Systems, Marand Precision Engineering, DSTO are just a handful of Industry sites that welcomed Darren and the other DISC participants to gain insight and engage with personnel to appreciate and recognise the growing contribution that local Australian industry has in direct support of operational capabilities.
