The Australian Army has partnered with the Defence Innovation Hub to award an Army Innovation Day contract to SYPAQ to develop and demonstrate a next-generation battlefield logistics small unmanned aerial system (UAS), called the Precision Payload Delivery System (PPDS), for use by Australian soldiers.
This contract, valued at over $1 million, was awarded as part of Army Innovation Day 2018 using the Defence Innovation Hub’s Special Notice solicitation process.
SYPAQ is a 100 per cent Australian owned business based in Melbourne and, since the Defence Innovation Hub was established in December 2016, the company has been awarded five innovation contracts for concept exploration and capability demonstration.
