Following Anzac Day commemorations, this Defence Week opens with a look at a tense exchange in the Senate between Senator Penny Wong and RADM Greg Sammut over the percentage of Australian industry content in the Future Submarines. During proceedings, Defence also confirmed for the first time that it has sold two of the Huon-class minehunters.

In other news, Mike Kalms and Chris Williams ask why Australia has so few middle-sized defence industry companies, Northrop Grumman is chosen by DARPA to develop undersea passive radar, an Accenture report reveals the changing nature of cyber attacks, the latest US Marine Corps rotation lands in Darwin, and the Latrobe Valley spruiks its defence capabilities.

And the house announcements: We're thrilled to be hosting our first Space Summit in Canberra on Tuesday next week with an exciting line up of speakers set to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing Australia's growing space industry. We look forward to seeing you there, and for those not attending - it still isn't too late to register!
