Australian Military Sales

The role of the Australian Military Sales (AMS) team is to support Australian sovereign capability and military sales programs through the planning and execution of international government-to-government transfer of:

  • Australian Defence Organisation materiel
  • Australian-origin sensitive technology
  • products and services of Australian defence industry.

AMS seeks expressions of interest from foreign governments for consideration for government-to-government transfers.

Australian Military Sales supports Australian defence industry to export leading-edge capability solutions to foreign government customers.

By leveraging relationships across the military diplomatic community, AMS provides opportunities for Australian defence industry to utilise Defence’s network of national and international military partners to identify sales opportunities thereby improving and enhancing the promotion and export of products and capabilities.

The Australian Defence Sales Catalogue (the Catalogue) showcases selected products and services from Australian defence industry and Australian Defence Force (ADF) surplus equipment available for sale under government-to-government arrangements.

The inaugural Catalogue was launched on 16 February 2017 by the then Minister for Defence Industry. Now in its fifth year, the 2021 Catalogue again showcases Australian defence industry’s innovative and leading edge products and services.

The Catalogue continues to grow and it will again be expanded in 2022 to provide further opportunity to highlight selected products, technology, platforms and services that are available for export from Australia’s world-class defence industry sector.

The fifth edition of the Catalogue was released by the Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon Melissa Price on 7 May 2021. This latest edition provides information on surplus ADF equipment for sale across the maritime, land and aerospace domains to foreign government customers, as well as showcasing 214 Australian defence industry companies with world-leading products and services. The 2021 Catalogue now also includes a new Space Capabilities section, highlighting Australia’s contribution in important sector. For Australian defence industry companies there is the ‘Doing Business’ section, which provides valuable information on government support to businesses looking to export. Further enhancements will be made to the Catalogue during the year and updates will be provided on this webpage in due course.

Advice to foreign governments on surplus ADF equipment and defence industry products and services may be obtained by completing the Expression of Interest (PDF). This form is for foreign government use only.

Equipment is offered on the basis of as is, where is.
