Rapid Prototyping, Development
 and Evaluation Program
A joint Defence-Industry initiative
RPDE Accelerating Capbility Development

When the Australian Defence Force has complex, high-risk problems, Rapid Prototyping, Development and Evaluation delivers the solutions.

We are a unique collaboration between Defence, industry and academia, bringing together the best and brightest from across the defence industry spectrum. When these forces join in a neutral, non-competitive environment, knowing that intellectual property and commercial interests are protected, the results are formidable.

Delivering Innovative Solutions

Defence-Industry-Academia collaborate to address complex Defence capability development and modernisation issues. Our recent video (launched at Pacific Maritime Expo 2015) provides a snapshot of the breadth of what can be done when we give Defence access to the best people from the right organisations.
