The participants include Australis Engineering, Britton Maritime, Chess Industries, Breseight Engineering, Jar-aerospace, Yokogawa, ShireBiz, and Southern Strength.
The group has been meeting since May to determine projects in which they could collaborate with ANSTO.  Recently, following a presentation from ANSTO staff, they have focussed on projects that could assist ANSTO in automating present and future facilities.
