Work in defence industry can be rewarding, providing SMEs with lucrative opportunities. The Defence Teaming Centre (DTC) helps to break down the barriers for SMEs entering the defence industry sector. Our passionate team of professionals form strong relationships with industry, academia, Defence and Government to inform how we support industry. We develop and connect Australian industry to meet the needs of Defence and support the creation of sovereign industrial capability. The DTC develops industry for opportunities in Defence supply chains through the provision of sector specific training, development, and tools. The DTC then connects members to opportunities in defence supply chains.  

This Quad Chart Guide has been developed by the DTC thanks to the support of our Prime Supporters, Airbus Australia Pacific, BAE Systems Australia, Lockheed Martin Australia, Naval Group Australia, Rheinmetall Defence Australia, and Saab Australia. Our Prime Supporters reviewed this Guide, contributing their insights and expertise to provide industry with a resource to decrease the cost of doing business in defence.

Quad Charts are one piece of the puzzle in defence industry when navigating the long lead times, complex programs, and strict quality control requirements in defence supply chains. The DTC’s suite of development programs and events support industry to meet the high demands of defence industry. Whether new to the sector and looking to explore your fit, or an established defence industry business looking for an edge above your competitors, the DTC’s Industry Development Program will provide you with a development pathway for your business and staff. The program has been developed in consultation with the Department of Defence, Prime Contractors, and defence industry to meet the needs of Defence.
