Happy New year and welcome to what we hope will be an exciting and successful year.
The team at Australian Defence Business Review and our sister publication, Australian Aviation hope you have had a peaceful, safe and restful break over the Christmas / New Year period, and that your return to work isn’t too much of a shock to the system! And for those who are deployed or who worked over this period, many thanks for your ongoing commitment to Australia’s interests and to the wider community.
You’ll see some exciting changes at ADBR in the next few months, both here online and in the magazine. New topics of interest will include force level design and integration, next-generation EW, Navy recapitalisation and sustainment, cyber and information warfare, project and capability sustainment updates in the context of Smart Buyer, human factors and performance, people in Defence, future and disruptive technologies, and advances in academia and STEM research.
We’ll also be looking beyond Australia’s borders at emerging capabilities in our region, and will do a deep dive on the 2018/19 Defence Budget in May, and a comprehensive update of the Defence Integrated Investment Plan.
We welcome any and all constructive feedback, and look forward to bringing you a more comprehensive and innovative coverage of the Australian Defence domain in 2018.
