Defence has done quite well out of the Budget this year. While there are no huge surprises in terms of announcements of new capabilities or contract awards from the Minister, a modest 1.93 per cent of GDP is not to be sneezed at.

As I have pointed out in the past, this decision has been a long time coming. Time that has literally cost money for the bidders.
 And as always, please explore the ADM website for all your research needs in terms of past programs, events and much more.
