This week ADM Editor Katherine Ziesing reports on the recent Defence Innovation Hub and CDIC update event and Rheinmetall is standing by to bring more SMEs on board for Land 400 Phase 2 should its Boxer CRV bid be successful.   

Army is already looking to the future for its small UAS capability and Australia is formally approved for purchase of up to five G550 ISREW aircraft.

As we went to press the Government has announced a strengthening of the Australian Industry Capability Plan Template, so as to conform with that used for the OPV and Future Frigates RFTs; it will be rolled out across all relevant materiel procurements according to Defence Industry Minister Christopher Pyne. Also hot off the press – DCNS Group has changed its name to Naval Group.

ADM's hugely popular Defence Estate and Base Services Summit will return to Canberra on 19th September – early bird rates will expire tomorrow!

Lastly, ADM is saddened to learn of the death of LCDR Steven Noakes while serving as Commanding Officer of Cape Inscription. We extend our sincere condolences to his family, friends and the crew, who tried valiantly to save him,
