Today the ADM team are at the Land Forces 2014 conference which will soon be wrapping up for another year. There has been lots to see and some big announcements made including Land 400 teaming arrangements.

This week in Defence Week Premium, Julian Kerr reports on doubts raised over proposed naval build solutions. I take a look at the hiring shenanigans for phase 2B of the long running JP2072 comms program and senior contributor Tom Muir reports on the Combined Space Operations Initiative and how this will enable Canada, the US, the UK and Australia with data that will help prevent collisions.

The September edition of ADM is also out and about. If your copy hasn’t landed on your desk, please contact Martin Phillpott at or Tel 1800 807 760.
