From autonomous marine vehicles to advanced additive manufacturing and cybersecurity, the technologies of tomorrow are results from the world class research we do today.
This island continent we call home presents unique challenges for security. It brings into play land, sea and air technology and puts this technology into situations where second best simply isn't good enough.
Flinders is at the frontline of defence-oriented research and development in myriad ways across our campuses. Imagine a day very soon when we have unmanned warships patrolling our coastline. We are developing that capability now.
Our robotics team are making new advances that could keep our soldiers out of harm’s way, our fibre optics technology is revolutionising battlefield communications, our engineers are evolving ways to enhance body mechanics to ensure our military personnel are at peak performance levels…we are even looking at making munitions and explosives more stable for longer.
