Our Story

Ascent is wholly Australian, veteran owned company, established in 2016 to provide professional engineering, project management and integrated logistics support services for our customers in the Defence, intelligence, security, and related industries.

The founders of Ascent identified a need for greater competition in the Defence engineering and acquisition sector and have created a viable, independent, and competitive alternative to the established participants.

Why Choose Ascent?

Our primary point of difference from our competitors is the ability to source and offer candidates who are highly qualified, experienced, and recognised as leaders within their respective domain.

Our people have a proven track record and reputation for “getting the job done”. Our candidates are not ‘normal’ candidates; they represent some of the best available people within the industry. Ascent is an authorised CASG Defence Support Services provider, DISP member, and approved for transfer of ITARs controlled data and information by the US Department of State across multiple platforms, SPO’s and OEM’s.

Ascent acknowledges that our real strength, and what really matters to you our customers, is the reputation and quality of our consultants: our people on the ground. Our consultants are drawn from the best personnel available across the breadth and depth of Defence industry. Ascent is a selective employer and each of our primary consultants comes with a minimum of 10 years Australian Defence Force (ADF) and/or foreign allied Defence industry experience.
