Technology Management, Analysis and Industrialisation Division

The acquisition of technology for Category 1 defence matériel, facilities and services in accordance with the operational requirements of the Department of Defence (DOD) as mandated by the service level agreement between Armscor and the DOD is allocated to the Technology Management, Analysis and Industrialisation (TEMANI) Division in the R&D Business Unit. The centralised coordination and management role for technology acquisition and industrialisation are performed independently by TEMANI.

Management of Technology Development Programmes

Technology development programmes in various technology areas are undertaken in order to develop and maintain relevant technologies and capabilities in South Africa. This allows the South African National Defence Force to maintain strategic capabilities in-country in response to new and challenging demands.

The technology development programmes are conducted in SADI, Defence Evaluation and Research Institutes, and at tertiary education institutions (Universities).

Management of Technology Development Programmes include:

Aerospace Technology that provides the South African Air Force with scientific and engineering support services in the aeronautics, airborne electronic warfare and guided weapons domains.

Management of Landwards Technology that provides SA Army with scientific and engineering advice and technological solutions aimed at providing engineering knowledge to improve weapon systems in the domains of mobility, protection and firepower.

Maritime Technology that provides SA Navy with scientific and engineering support services, as well as risk reduction work for acquisition projects. Research and development work is being conducted in the underwater communications, underwater warfare, and above-water warfare domains.

Electronics Technology that provides ready technology base to provide scientific and engineering advice and technical solutions in radar, electronic warfare, optronics, communications, command and control and cyber domains.

Support Technology that develops and maintains sustainable capability in chemical and biological defence as well as ergonomics and body armour as part of soldier support.

Technology-Based Special Programmes including the Defence Engineering and Science University Programme (DESUP), and Defence Transformative Enterprise Development (DEFTED) on behalf of the client.
