This week's Defence Week Premium effort is full of highlights from DSTO's Partnership Week, which is going on in Edinburgh, SA at the moment. Both Nigel Pittaway and Julian Kerr were there to see the action first hand.
In other news, ASC gathered its Collins supply chain
, DISC registrations are closing soon and we have a look at how Indonesia does Defence in our ongoing international series.
I'll be heading into the Budget lock up next week in Canberra, with the inestimable Mark Thomson as my Budget buddy, so stay tuned for all things economic in DWP next week. Until then, catch the team on Twitter
or online.

You can also now download the May edition on your iPad, via the iTunes store, or tablet via Googleplay. Look for the Australian Defence Magazine free APP. This is part of the premium subscription.
