With the welcome onset of Spring, in this week's ADM Defence Week Premium newsletter we cover cyber security, RNZAF replacements for 757 and C-130H and the engineering woes of the USN's Littoral Combat Ships.
In other news, we report how Government grants will assist advanced manufacturers such as Redarc to expand their operations and DCNS will collaborate with UNSW on submarine technology – we note "under stringent security requirements that govern the manner in which all information and technical data is managed".
Naturally the ADM team will be at Land Forces 2016 next week – drop in and say hello at our stand 4A1 in Hall 1. If you haven't already got a copy of our latest edition you can pick one up and also enter the draw (bring your business card!) for our daily prize of a wine and military history books pack,
