Well ladies and gents, it all started happening this week. Defence Minister Kevin Andrews released the eagerly awaited First Principles Review and ASPI has a good hard look at Sea 5000 and associated maritime doctrine and industrial issues. And all of this comes in the wake of the Sub Summit last week. If you're not engaged in Defence at the moment, you're missing out.

The next big cab off the rank will no doubt by the budget next month. Unless the minister decides to go all out and release the White Paper, Force Structure Review and updated DCP and Defence Industry Policy Statement. But I shan't hold my breath on those coming out before May.

As always, feedback is more than welcome on anything you read in ADM, be it newsletters, online or in print. I'm just a phone call or email away.

Enjoy your well earned Easter break campers.
