In our April 2018 edition, ADM presents Sea Power 2018.
Managing Editor Katherine Ziesing discusses the longevity of the SEA 5000 program and what Australian shipbuilding might look like in 2030. She also covers Lockheed Martin's selection of Australian SME Milskil as the preferred supplier on F-35A Joint Strike Fighter training services, and the possible deployment of drones to enhance security on defence bases.
Deputy Editor at Large Nigel Pittaway reports from Singapore on the highlights of the Singapore Air Show. Nigel also covers the arrival of the final C-27J Spartan in Australia and the forthcoming decision on the Future Frigate, while Philip Smart discusses the importance of logistics and supply chain management.
In his final contributions to ADM, Patrick Durrant writes on the signing of the OneSky contract, the management system upgrades to the Collins class submarines, and the three new Hawk 127 full mission simulators now in use at RAAF Bases Pearce and Williamtown.
Senior Correspondent Julian Kerr also reports on the Joint Strike Fighters as Lockheed takes delivery of the first specialist deployable facilities. Julian then covers RAN's new decompression chambers and gives a run-down on the logistics behind RAMSI.
In light of the approaching decision on the Sea 5000 Future Frigates, our guest From the Source interviewee is BAE Systems Australia's new CEO Gabby Costigan.
