Welcome to the October edition of Australian Defence Magazine - Defence in the North.
In this month's editorial, Managing Editor Katherine Ziesing asks questions about the government's goal of becoming a Top 10 Defence Exporter and whether Defence and industry need to look outside the comfort zone. Katherine also catches up with Tasmanian SME Penguin Composites and Deakin University as both strengthen relationships with Defence.
Deputy Editor Nigel Pittaway reveals British moves towards buying E-7 Wedgetails, Online Editor Ewen Levick talks to senior Army officers about drone literacy, and Senior Correspondent Julian Kerr dives into the Land 400 Phase 3 contenders on show at this year's Land Forces.
Nigel Pittaway also attends the Army Aviation Symposium, looks at the companies jostling for the Special Operations Helicopter RFI, examines the NIFTI flight test capability, and covers the entirety of Exercise Pitch Black, which saw combat aircraft thundering over the north.
Ewen Levick talks to Department 13 about counter-UAS and talks to Mercedes about G-Wagon sustainment, Julian Kerr writes on passive radar systems and sustainment of the Armidales, and Nigel Pittaway investigates LHD sustainment.
