This week ADM Editor Katherine Ziesing takes a look at the vagaries of one of Defence's largest IT programs.

Senior Correspondent Julian Kerr reveals Raytheon’s plans to site Future Submarine Program combat system incubators in Adelaide and other locations "where they are of most significant strategic need for Defence". He also has an exclusive photo and news of Rheinmetall's prizefighter for Land 400 Phase 2 – the Boxer CRV – in AUSCAM.

We take a look at the Hawk LIF trainers as the fleet surpasses 100k hours and the Harpoon Block II Plus missile will soon enter service with the US Navy with an improved guidance capability.

It's time to send in proposals for the next round of the CTD program and with naval shipbuilding set to take off demand for defence related courses is on the rise.

As we went to press, news is circulating the Pentagon has confirmed that the date for final IOT&E of the F-35 JSF has now slipped from mid-2017 to early 2018.
