CASG chief Kim Gillis has offered Editor Katherine Ziesing some explanation for the Raytheon single source tender announced this week and on the topic of integrated air and missile defence, the Sir Richard Williams Foundation has released a study.

Nigel Pittaway continues his digging for comprehensive answers on Air Force's King Air deal and Ocius Technology's Bluebottle USV is performing well on trials as it readies for a CTD test later in the year.

In other news, local RUAG boffins prove a new wing repair technology and the Mesmer counter-UAS solution finds its first customer in Australia.   

Our latest ADM April Seapower edition is out. This month we cover Future Frigates and Submarines as well as AWD trials and sustainment in the north. There's also comprehensive wraps on the recent Avalon Airshow and an interview with new Lockheed Martin Australia CEO Vince Di Pietro. View it here

Finally on behalf of the ADM team I wish you all a happy Easter,
