The former Rapid Prototyping, Development and Evaluation (RPDE) program has been fully integrated into the Defence Innovation Hub. The functions and services previously provided by RPDE, including those in support to capability development and Capability Managers, are now being delivered by the Defence Innovation Hub. The traditional RPDE activities such as QuickAnswers and Quicklooks are being replaced and enhanced with a new program known as Rapid Assessments, to be piloted in the second quarter of 2018.
For more information on the Defence Innovation Hub, including Defence's Priority Innovation Needs, the Call for Submissions, Special Notices, and Rapid Assessment processes visit www.business.gov.au/cdic or call 13 28 46.
