READ: XTEK wins SICP grant to fund commercial-scale production plant development for XTclave technology
The company recently signed a $1 million grant agreement from the Centre of Defence Industry Capability (CIC) for a Sovereign Industrial Capability Priority (SICP) grant on behalf of the Department of Defence.
The SICP grant provides funding to support Australian small-to-medium enterprises in supplying capabilities that are critical to defence.
Funds will go towards total project expenditure to establish the production plant, machinery and other line equipment for XTEK’s proprietary XTclave technology.
XTEK has also entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Skykraft Pty Limited for the development and potential manufacture of small spacecraft and launcher systems.
Under the MoU, XTEK and Skykraft will work together to co-engineer spacecraft and launcher structures as well as identify opportunities for the supply of these structures out of XTEK’s patented XTclave production facility.
