The recent defence industry hearing conducted by the NSW Government gets coverage in this ADM Defence Week – with some constructive feedback provided by the industry and advocacy reps in attendance, there's no reason why NSW can't perform as strongly as other states, particularly in the area of smart systems. STEM shortfalls however, remain an obstacle that requires more of a government focus.

I chat to Karen Stanton, MD at Heat Treatment Australia and a grateful recipient of the Government's Global Supply Chain program, as her company takes advantage of the 'vac-braze craze'.

Further analysis will be required to solve the LCM-1E and M1A1 relationship, with the latter proving too much for the former to bear, and an international cyber law expert calls on governments to more clearly define legal boundaries in relation to cyber attacks.

Tomorrow marks the last opportunity for early bird rates at the forthcoming Pacific 2017 maritime expo in Sydney, so be sure to register before it’s too late.

Finally our latest August edition of ADM is available online here,
