The 4th edition of the Australian Defence Sales Catalogue, formerly known as the Australia Military Sales Catalogue, was released by the Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon Melissa Price MP.

170 Australian businesses are featured in this year’s edition – a 49% increase from the previous edition.

Small businesses from each Australian state and territory are represented in the Catalogue, highlighting the strength of Australia’s defence industry sector and the Morrison Government’s investment to grow innovative defence industry across the country.

What does the catalogue feature

The Catalogue features information on government support services available to Australian defence industry to help maximise export opportunities. The government agencies providing these programs include:

  • Defence Export Controls
  • the Australian Defence Export Office
  • Centre for Defence Industry Capability
  • Team Defence Australia
  • Export Finance Australia
  • Austrade

The Catalogue also lists select surplus Australian Defence Force (ADF) equipment and platforms that will be shortly retired from service. These platforms are available to Australia’s international partners on a Government-to-Government and Commercial-to-Government sales transfer basis.

The transfer of ex-ADF equipment to foreign governments is subject to a rigorous approval process, independent from the Australian Defence Export Office.

The 2020 Australian Defence Sales Catalogue is now available.
