Research to focus on defence, search, deep packet inspection.

Science Applications International Corporation has revealed plans to create a regional cyber security research and development centre in Melbourne.

The R&D centre will create 50 jobs over the next three years, according to a statement by the Victorian State Government.

The jobs will be in the areas including high-end defence simulation and "related defence areas".

Specifically, the centre will research data mining and analysis systems, such as SIAC's enterprise search tool TeraText, and its subsidiary's deep packet inspection software, CloudShield.

SAIC vice president and regional manager Steve Rizzi will head up the new centre.

"SAIC's Melbourne cyber security centre will work with the Asia Pacific region's leading technology and security specialists on some of the world's most pressing challenges and deliver products that will protect critical infrastructure and make the region a better place," Rizzi said.

He said the centre would also focus on "new initiatives and opportunities around the National Broadband Network".

SAIC has an existing office presence in Queensland and Victoria, and 41,000 employees worldwide.
