ADM's Premium offering this week contains more detailed analysis of the Budget as it pertains to Defence; there are few surprises but as Editor Katherine Ziesing writes, that should be regarded as a good thing.

Julian Kerr gives readers an exclusive on Hawkei passing the penultimate test prior to LRIP - blast testing - and the RAAF has played a key role in upgrades to new Airbus automatic air to air refuelling technology.  

Sadly, two soldiers have died in training accidents within a week and Army has suspended training activities across its combat brigades to review procedures.

Finally our trans-Tasman friends have conducted an investigation into a recent NH90 engine failure and contributed to a sizeable drug haul in the Middle East.

One of our successful annual events held each year is the Defence Estate and Base Services Summit, this year scheduled for September 19. Register your interest to receive the full program or book now to save hundreds on the standard rate,
