As we get further into the new year and therefore closer to an announcement on Sea 1000 Future Submarines, there will be a lot of chaff and scuttlebutt as to who's been eliminated from contention, but without the privilege of inside knowledge, we're going to have to wait patiently for the evaluation team's recommendation. 
A significant capability improvement in the form of the Excalibur N5 munition is being eyed by Defence as a potential weapon for the RAN's Air Warfare Destroyers and Boeing has successfully completed the first refueling flight with the KC-46A Pegasus Tanker.
We get an SME's perspective on the current state of play in Defence with regard to cyber security and see how science contributes significantly to the Australian economy.
In other news Lockheed Martin and Rheinmetall seek to consolidate and streamline their businesses and the ASMD upgrade project achieves another milestone.  
Less than two weeks to go until ADM2016 Congress! You can still register at – the ADM team looks forward to seeing you there,
