DWP is a truly a mixed bag of stories from around the country this week. From all things maritime such as submarines, aerial surveillance for the Pacific Boats program to RFIs and contract signature announcements, we've got it covered.
I have also breathed a sigh of relief as I sent off our July edition to the printers this week, complete with the ADM redesign in place. Keep an eye out for the edition next month and let us know what you think of the new look. The ADM website will also be undergoing a redesign in the coming months to support this.
As always, your feedback is more than welcome. Email, phone, fax and smoke signals are available below and online.
