The world's biggest defence contractor was in the spotlight this week with announcements on the changing local leadership, the USAF's F-35A IOC and the establishing of a new R&D lab in Melbourne.

In other news, the first team has broken cover for JP2060 (Deployable Health capability), 3D printed parts take their first US Navy flight and the Dutch get the ball rolling on an MRTT pool for NATO.

In light of the big Land 400 news last week, a reminder that applications from SMEs registering interest in the program are still welcome,
