There is a distinct submarine flavour to this edition of DWP with news that Lockheed Martin, Thales and Saab have opened a new combat systems lab in Adelaide, Indonesia is to buy Russian Kilo class boats and some clarification on what the CEP is actually covering.

By the time this edition of DWP hits your desktop, our new Defence Minister should be in her new digs at Parliament House no doubt reading over all the work already done on the White Paper and surrounding documents. I do wonder how much the document will change under her guidance. Keep in mind, Senator Payne is the third MINDEF this paper has seen . . . We'll let you know more as we do.

And the ADM team is looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible at Pacific 2015 next week in Sydney. Feel free to stop by our stand #2DI for a chat or a well earned rest.
