The Australian Defence Business Review is an independent defence information platform with an international reach delivering business development and capability development insights from an Australian perspective.

Acting in the national interest we specialise in comparative capability analysis, and the future requirements of strike, air warfare, and Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance.

Led by Chris McInnes, one of Australia’s leading airminded national security thinkers, our team comprises world-class analysts with over a century of experience in military and national security operations, policy, capability, and industry.

The Australian Defence Business Review decoupled from its traditional media profile in July 2022 to partner with Australian boutique management consultancy, Felix, and we continue to draw on its heritage of independent, high-quality reporting and analysis of defence issues.

Our content remains freely accessible and shareable to encourage discussion and debate.
