There's naturally a focus on Pacific 2017 in this Defence Week – and ADM takes this opportunity to thank the organisers and Navy for another successful event. It was great to catch up with many of you from both Defence and industry at the show. Various highlights can already be found on our website.

Submarines stole much of the limelight and Editor Katherine Ziesing was on hand to hear the latest on the Future Submarine. There's also news on Collins, the Maritime Australia Industry Innovation Awards, and efforts to counter the shipbuilding skills gap. Our full coverage of the event will be available in the November edition of ADM
