In this edition of ADM's Premium newsletter, Editor Katherine Ziesing has observed the ANAO's displeasure with Defence on the topic of disposals as well as some of the maritime program highlights of last week's Senate Estimates hearing.
Tectonica will integrate a land situational awareness system into Rheinmetall's Boxer CRV for Land 400/2 and Boeing will take over Chinook maintenance; the company has also established a P-8A training centre in the US for aircrew.
The first fully unmanned US Navy squadron has been formed around the MQ-4C Triton, a platform also earmarked for the RAAF in coming years and JORN technology is being acquired by the US Naval Research Lab for their HF radar research program.
There are a large number of important defence industry relevant events concerning major projects in the coming months. See the listings in our PDF version of the newsletter or on our website,
