Defence Week features leading stories from our globetrotter Nigel Pittaway who's visited Sea 5000 contender Fincantieri in Genoa as it launches a new FREMM and has dropped into the Singapore Airshow on the way home.

Katherine Ziesing previews our Congress next Tuesday and talks to Airbus about the Tiger HAD retrofit for the Australian ARH. We also cover developments in the Pacific aerial maritime surveillance domain.

There are eight tenders concerning hotel services work for the two remaining Air Warfare Destroyers so be sure to check out our weekly tenders. 

Finally, the ADM team looks forward to catching up with many of you at Congress,
