More about: BAE Systems’ Factory of the Future Technology Showcase

What is it? A showcase for innovative Australian businesses to demonstrate their technological capabilities and capacity to provide solutions towards the factory of the future.

What are the objectives? To highlight and experience state of the art technologies, tools, and techniques first-hand, while identifying the capabilities of local industry and their alignment to fulfil BAE Systems’ technological development opportunities facing the Hunter Class Frigate Program.

Innovation Manager ASC Shipbuilding, Evangelos Lambrinos, said:

“The Factory of the Future technology showcase features some of Australia’s leading innovators, and we are excited that a variety of small and medium Australian businesses could attend.
“We want to create a hive of activity for innovation collaboration and this event will hopefully lead to future partnerships on research and technology development in Australia and globally.”

Tradiebot’s Director of Engineering and Operational Technology Kristan Marlow said:

“It is extremely exciting and rewarding to have been invited by BAE Systems to take part in such a showcase event for the Defence industry and have such a prime position.”
“Tradiebot, who is one of the country’s leading industry 4.0 innovators, demonstrated their Augmented and Virtual Reality training and information management solutions to attendees through a range of interactive and immersive experiences.”    

This event brought together technology innovators from all over Australia. Tradiebot was able to showcase alongside these other innovators and was able to highlight the diverse use cases of its digital technologies to the Defence sector. Their technology can be applied within any industry that requires the intuitive delivery of contextually relevant digital information and training.

Tradiebot initially started developing these innovative applications for the automotive repair and service sector to address the growing skills shortage and lack of new apprentices coming into the trade. Their technologies enable technicians of varied skill levels to intuitively learn, be walked through, and perform any type of maintenance or repair procedure.

Tradiebot CEO Mario Dimovski said:

“The defence sector is one area we have been looking at expanding into. We have previously been approached by a number of CRC’s and companies in this space, though wanted to wait for the right opportunity and potential partner before taking the leap to further explore this sector. This event was definitely the right fit for us and we are looking forward to building further relations with sectors of the BAE team.
