A Victorian defence industry company has received funding to boost its cyber readiness to help it crack the lucrative US market.

Minister for Defence Industry Melissa Price said it was one of three new grants awarded, totalling almost $400,000, under a Morrison Government scheme aimed at boosting exports for Australian businesses.

Two other firms also received funding under the Defence Global Competitiveness Grant program to boost opportunities in the global F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program and for specialist infa-red lighting for US military customers.
