Manufacturing, Exports and Trade Minister, Richard Dalla-Riva has announced support for Australian Defence Apparel (ADA) to manufacture new body combat armour.

The body combat armour was developed as part of a collaborative project involving ADA, Defence Materials Technology Centre (DMTC), Victorian Centre for Advanced Materials Manufacturing (VCAMM) and CSIRO.

“It will be manufactured using leading edge production techniques and will enable ADA to respond far more rapidly to the ever-changing demands of the Australian Defence Force by quickly developing new designs or ramping up production to meet surges in demand,” Mr Dalla-Riva said.
