Noetic bags three-year contract to support Australian Defence Force experiments


Consultancy firm Noetic’s contract with the Australian Defence Force will see it support a range of defence experiments designed to test ADF future force structure. Noetic will develop classified scenario environments, experiments, and tools to simulate wargaming.

FTS Group, which owns consultancy firm Noetic, has been awarded the contract to support the Joint Experimentation Directorate (JED) Forward Work Plan FY21-26 for an initial term of three years with options to extend.

The contract will see Noetic continue their partnership with JED to shape defence operating concepts and force options for Australian Defence Force (ADF) capability.

In the next three years, Noetic’s team will support a range of defence experiments focused on concepts, analysis, and system comparison, designed to test ADF future force structure.

Noetic’s delivery includes the development of classified scenario environments, experimentation design and analysis, the management of simulation tools, and training to boost the ADF’s experimentation and wargaming skills.

Ken Snell, Noetic program lead in JED, stresses that “this is strategically important and game changing for the Australian Defence in terms of force design.”

“We look forward to continuing our journey in collaboration with JED, through ongoing provision of our highly qualified and experienced team combined with the professional services strength of Noetic,” says Snell.

The results of experimentation, according to Noetic, will generate evidence for key decision makers, such as the vice chief of Defence Force, to make informed investment decisions that guide the acquisition of Defence’s future capabilities.

Andrew Balmaks, Noetic CEO, concludes: “This significant contract is testament to our highly capable, trustworthy, and innovative service delivery to both JED and the broader Department of Defence. We are honoured to continue this strategically important work and further strengthen our long-standing partnership with Defence."
