2018 Australian Military Sales Catalogue


The Australian Military Sales Office (AMSO) is a Directorate within Defence’s Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group. The role of AMSO is to support Australian sovereign capability and military sales programs through:

  • International Government-to-Government sale, gifting or other transfer of surplus and obsolete Defence articles.
  • International Government-to-Government purchase of Australian origin, sensitive technology, Defence articles.
  • Supporting Australian defence industry to export to foreign government customers.

AMSO supports Australian defence industry to export leading–edge capability solutions to foreign government customers.

By leveraging relationships across the military diplomatic community, AMSO provides opportunities for Australian defence industries to utilise Defence’s network of national and international military partners to identify sales opportunities thereby improving and enhancing the promotion and export of products and capabilities.

The purpose of the Australian Military Sales Catalogue (AMSC), formally known as the Australian Military Sales Equipment Catalogue (AMSE), is to inform potential foreign government customers of Australian defence equipment and of Australian defence industry products and services available under international government to government arrangements; AMSO seeks expressions of interest from foreign governments for consideration.
