In recent years, through the application of computer-based technologies, there has been an increasing ability to manipulate extremely difficult and complex industrial problems. ID & Associates has been able to develop some of the technologies arising from the research and development work of the Department of Electrical Engineering of the University of Newcastle interfaced with available commercial systems and software into marketable products and services.
ID & Associates has taken over TIED, a division of TUNRA (The University of Newcastle Research Associates). ID & Associates Pty Ltd was established in 2000. The ownership and the capabilities of TIED were passed onto ID & Associates Pty Ltd with the same staff and contracted employees to complete the work.
ID & Associates has the knowledge and expertise in a wide range of Defence and Defence Industry areas. ID & Associates have a very good knowledge of the Hunter Defence (www.hunterdefence.com) and carry out consultation work as Defence Project Officer for the Newcastle and Hunter Business Chamber (NHBC), Hunter Economic Development Corporation (HEDC) and the Industry Development Centre (IDC)
