Remote Imaging Solutions has been selected to be listed in the inaugural Defence Industry Capability Directory. It is part of the Western Australian Governments support for local Defence Industry by highlighting the capabilities of all the businesses in WA that can contribute to the latest wave of investment in projects that Defence is undertaking in WA.
The work conducted as part of the Defence West Hub’s initiative is supported by the Premier Mark McGowan and the Minister for Defence Issues Paul Papalia. The aim is to focus on the Commonwealth Government’s Defence Integrated Investment Program and the six capability streams contained within it.
The company was able to review its current and future plans of UAVs and ROVs against the Defence capability streams to understand where its products could contribute to the national Defence endeavour. As part of the selection process Remote Imaging Solutions was able to detail and demonstrate the capabilities it encompasses across 5 capability streams and 15 capability domains.
Rear Admiral (Rtd) Raydon Gates AO CSM, promotes the world class and globally competitive capabilities of WA and the Defence Industry Capability Directory. It will be the first stop for enterprises looking to engage with small to medium enterprises like Remote Imaging Solutions to utilise UAVs and ROVs in a range of Defence activities in WA.
In addition to the Defence Industry Capability Directory highlighting the skills and expertise in UAVs and ROVs, Remote Imaging Solutions is proud to be part of the Henderson Alliance. It is the intention of Remote Imaging Solutions to expand its presence into Defence Industry to collaborate with all levels of contractors and embed itself as an enterprise of choice when utilising UAV and ROV technology to compliment Defence maintenance and operations.
“The Henderson Alliance has been established by a group of progressive small & medium enterprises (SMEs) to support a higher level of small business participation in emerging defence industry contracts in Western Australia.”
The purpose is three-fold:
- to provide a voice to industry and government for SMEs in defence
- to provide a platform for SMEs to form partnerships to allow participation in larger scale projects
- to create a forum for networking, mutual support and innovation
