Australian firearms and ammunition specialist NIOA has announced plans to invest in “disruptive technologies” as part of its continuing expansion.

The company said on 5 August that it has established a future technologies division that will look to develop advanced military capabilities in collaboration with other firms.

Robert Nioa – managing director of the company – said the new division “is aimed at exploring globally disruptive technology in the defence sector, fostering innovation of existing technology, exploring futuristic development, and supporting the company’s strategic growth through unique partnerships and co-development opportunities.”

NIOA has appointed a chief technology officer to lead its new division, which will be located at the company’s headquarters in Brisbane and will leverage assets across NIOA facilities in both Australia and the United States.
