In this week’s edition of Defence Week Premium, we report on a potential NZ purchase of the P-8A Poseidon though it is still too early to jump to any conclusions.

In local news, German OPV contender Lürssen is unphased by a build undertaken in two shipyards and the calls for a national space agency are getting louder still.

Cyber security is certainly a hot topic at the moment, with two agencies being called out for poor cyber resilience and a proposal for a new model of cyber information sharing in Australia.

Finally as we went to press, Saab Australia and the University of SA (UniSA) announced an investment of up to $40 million for a purpose built new wing of Saab's Mawson Lakes headquarters, to create the Saab / UniSA Defence Institute.

As online editor of ADM, I’m keen to hear from you so we can bring the latest news to our ever expanding online readership,
