Professor Sabatini named Scientist of the Year at the Australian Defence Industry Awards 2019

During a stunning event held in Canberra on 26 September, the Australian Defence Industry Awards have recognised the nation’s top defence industry professionals and businesses. Professor Roberto Sabatini was conferred the “Scientist of the Year” award in a strong field of contenders.

This award recognises a scientist that has delivered outstanding work for their organisation or institution while supporting the strengthening of Australia’s defence and national security capabilities through their participation in the defence industry. This award is the result of many years of hard work, passion and commitment to establish and grow the RMIT Cyber-Physical Systems Group. A group that delivers transformational research outcomes to high calibre industry partners such as Thales Group and Northrop Grumman Corporation, as fully recognised during the Defence Industry Awards ceremony.

When asked by journalists to comment on which scientific and technological innovations are expected to produce the largest impact on future defence capabilities, Professor Sabatini stated that “Cyber-physical systems research is likely to produce the most significant impact. Both autonomous and closed-loop human-machine systems are at the core of the digital transformation that is impacting many industry sectors, including defence. One of the most exciting opportunities offered by this research track is the development of new cognitive processing and machine learning techniques for integration into future air and space trusted autonomous systems.”
