Welcome to the latest Defence Week Premium. The annual MilCIS Comms and IS conference winds up today and the general consensus seems to be we are heading in the right direction but there is still a way to go. ADM Editor Katherine Ziesing has been reporting from the event and there will be more to come.
Nigel Pittaway has a follow-up story on the MRTTs and the Joint Strike Missile which Australia is eyeing keenly has undergone tests in the US.
Australia has maintained its rating in the Defence anti-corruption index rated by Transparency International, with some room for improvement such as enhanced oversight of secret spending.
In education matters, the Australian Defence College will pilot Google Apps as part of the Government's push to adopt cloud platforms where appropriate, and civilian undergraduate students have been welcomed to participate in the engineering program at ADFA.  
We are still taking submissions for our annual Top 40 Defence Contractors or Top 20 Defence SMEs for 2015 – we hope to hear from you! In the meantime follow our news on Twitter, facebook and LinkedIn,
