We believe in the importance of industry engagement programs like this. It serves to strengthen commerical support for the ADF’s strategic reform program which is focused on extracting maximum value from its substantial asset base – a role where Relegen’s Defence and maritime experience, engineering expertise, and asset and risk intelligence technology is helping to prepare for this transformation.”
