In this week's ADM Defence Week Premium, I talk to the key people behind Army's recently announced acquisition of a small UAS capability that will prove to be transformational.

OPV bidder Luerssen has stepped up its industry engagement in Adelaide and the SIA's 4th SUBSTEC in November will have much to discuss with an exciting program just announced.

NSW is keen to get its slice of the defence budget as it conducts an inquiry on ways to grow its local industry and F-35s will eventually be upgraded with improved engines after recent successful tests.

For those with tickets, the ADM team looks forward to seeing you at the D+I Gala Awards night preceding the D+I conference on June 14. You can still register for the conference here,
