IT'S time to break out your best com-
bat kit concepts -- Diggerworks is re-
vitalising the Good Ideas Expo concept
across Australia in the second half of
Director Col Jason Blain said the
expo would identify equipment innova-
tions and inventions from soldiers.
"We know there are many good ideas
out there and we want to identify those
that should be considered by Army and
DMO to be progressed further," he said.
Initial planning is under way with
briefs being provided to all brigade head-
Regional expos will be conducted in
Darwin, Townsville, Brisbane, Sydney
All ideas welcome
Good Ideas Expo to tour bases seeking innovations for the soldier combat system
and Adelaide at a time agreed to at the
Winners from these events will pro-
gress to a final, which will be conducted
alongside the Land Warfare Conference
in Melbourne in late October.
The successful applicants will pro-
vide a 15-minute presentation on their
idea to two panels of judges.
Judges will be provided by each bri-
gade, and also technical experts from
a number of organisations, includ-
ing Army Headquarters, the Defence
Science and Technology Organisation,
Defence Material Organisation and the
Land Engineering Agency.
The Diggerworks Lead Planner, Maj
Stan Carnes, said the expos were open
to any ideas soldiers had.
"For that reason we have not limited
the scope of the expos in order to give
participants as much flexibility as pos-
sible," he said.
The first expo will be conducted in
Townsville on August 3 at the Lachlan
It is open to all Army personnel
from the north Queensland region, not
just 3 Bde.
Interested personnel should go through their
chain of command in the first instance or email
... we have not
limited the scope of
the expos in order
to give participants
as much flexibility
-- Maj Stan Carnes, Diggerworks
HOW TO INVENT
DIGGERWORKS aims to continually
improve the soldier combat system
with solutions that enhance soldier
Every solution must be integrated
into the system as a whole, not simply
added to the equipment list.
The Diggerworks process for solv-
ing combat equipment problems pro-
vides a model for the budding soldier-
inventor to follow in the search for the
next big innovation.
Identify the problem or requirement
From field experience.
From predicted future needs.
Evaluate available technology or
Engage with the relevant industry.
Develop or identify a solution
Develop the technology.
Design and engineer the solution.
Test and evaluate.
Finding innovative solutions: Much of the equipment in use by soldiers in Afghanistan today was developed or tested through Diggerworks.
