In somewhat confronting news this week, BAE Systems Australia has confirmed that it will not be bidding for the Pacific Patrol Boat program. This is a blatant shot across the bows of the government to get their act together on a national shipbuilding policy I suspect. As Julian Kerr points out in this article, not all is lost when it comes to the local industry with Austal going great guns across the globe with its shipbuilding business.

If you haven't been on Twitter for the last two days, you will have missed my complete spamming of all things cyber related from our annual Cyber Summit this week. Head to @austdefence @KZiesing or search for #Cybersecurity15 for all the latest. We will be producing a dedicated newsletter from this event next week.

And as always, your feedback is more than welcome. The June edition, with all things Budget related, should be on your desk by now but if it isn't please let us know.
