Thanks for all the helpful info! I apologise that i haven’t checked-in for a while. I spent a while exploring the options re: contracting direct to defence and decided that it was not the most feasible business option, especially as a sole trader taking on the likes of the prime contractors and established suppliers, who have thousands of employees. Cheers Geronimo and John for your input… I worked within defence for 5 years and can definitely relate to all your comments and advice.

The sub-contracting route seems feasible, but im now more focused on entering the commercial eng sector, as opposed to supplying defence. Seems to be fewer hurdles and more opportunities available for small tier business and sole traders. I suppose consulting to defence could still be an option down the track after once established.
