In a surprise for many, the architect of the DCNS campaign to secure the future submarine project, Sean Costello, resigned late last week as CEO of DCNS Australia – ADM takes this opportunity to wish him well in his next endeavour.

Otherwise we saw WA-based engineering fabricator Civmec partner with ASC Shipbuilding to build OPVs, and it's clear that the time is ripe for the establishment of an Australian space agency.

We also talk to Inmarsat and observe interesting developments regarding the M777 howitzer, the Knifefish UUV, and Canada's interim fighter capability plans.

The opportunity to submit expressions of interest for the Essington Lewis Awards (known formerly as the ADM/DMO Excellence in Collaboration Awards) has been extended until COB FRIDAY 24TH MARCH 2017. Check out the Awards tab for details. Please contact the awards coordinator if you have any questions about eligibility,
