ADM's Defence Week is something of a simulation special this time – yesterday I was fortunate to visit the Australasian Simulation Congress and exhibition in Sydney and have provided a brief summary of the experience; there will be more in our forthcoming edition of ADM.

Challenges abound in the LVC space but without surmounting them we'll never get the most out of our fifth generation assets, that's the take from Air Force's ranges director Darren Manser who delivered a presentation at the congress.

In other simulation news Bohemia Interactive has secured a VBS3 contract with the US Army and Naval Group is keen to show it's getting on with the job of building our future submarines.   

SAVE THE DATE! We're proud to announce our newest addition to the already thriving ADM Conference series. The STEM in Defence Summit, to be held in Canberra on 30 November, will focus on the overwhelming need for Defence to encourage, harness and progress its relationship with the Education sector. Book now and save $200!
