In our last ADM Defence Week Premium of the year, Rheinmetall outlines its vision for a military vehicle centre of excellence, Civmec moves in on neighbours BAE Systems and Austal, and 'the Steel Cat' has taken to the water in Adelaide.
In other news, the AMGC has released its 10 year sector competitiveness plan to boost manufacturing and Northrop Grumman demonstrates a distributed network environment for RAAF training.
ADM2017 Congress will be coming up early in the New Year. For the first time we will be holding a welcome reception on the evening before the event, featuring a keynote address from Defence Industry Minister Christopher Pyne. To avoid the New Year rush for tickets book early!   

Finally, on behalf of the ADM team I'd like to take the opportunity to wish you a happy festive season, we'll be back with more DWP on January 19,
