Shipbuilding announcements are not something to be taken lightly so when the Government dropped three on Monday many of us were caught offguard. And there's more to come as word spreads the National Security Council has made its final decision on the Sea 1000 Future Submarine program with an announcement expected sometime between ANZAC Day and the Budget release on May 3.

In other news ADM Editor Katherine Ziesing takes a closer look at what is shaping up to replace the ARH Tiger within the next decade and also reviews the success story that has been the ASMD upgrade as it nears completion in WA.

With the submarine contest nearing its final phase, German contender TKMS affirms its credentials and the first AWD NUSHIP Hobart lights-off her first main diesel engine.  

As we went to press the Government released its Cyber Security Strategy so we will endeavour to share this news with you via our website,
