Exporting Australian ICT

Australia is well known globally as a source of innovative technologies and the Australian information and communications technologies (ICT) industry continues to grow strongly and integrate into ICT supply chains around the world.

In 2010, Melbourne-based Future Fibre Technologies (FFT), a leader in perimeter intrusion detection systems, providing pipeline, fence and perimeter security systems using fibre optics, was named the Prime Minister’s Australian Exporter of the Year. FFT provides a clear demonstration of Australia’s growing influence in niche technology areas such as security and defence.

Other Australian Export Award 2010 winners from the ICT sector include:

  • Ansarada – a Sydney-based global provider of next generation virtual data rooms that enable faster, easier and safer business transactions;
  • Atlassian – a Sydney-based developer of tracking, collaboration and software development tools that sells to more than 22,000 companies worldwide; and
  • Pivot Marine International – a Tasmanian maritime simulation, training and consultancy firm.
