Welcome to the May 2022 edition of ADM: Seapower.

ADM Editor Nigel Pittaway opens this month's edition with an editorial discussing the uncertainty around Australia's future capability acquisitions, particularly in light of the continuing opacity of Defence. Also in this issue, Nigel writes about Army's Plan Corella as well as the Aegis Combat System beyond Baseline 8, gives an update on the Hunter-class Frigate program, discusses how training is underpinning maritime combat effectiveness, and looks at opportunities for Australia's defence industry under the US National Technology and Industrial Base (NTIB).

ADM Group Editor Ewen Levick investigates who killed the Attack-class and Mike Yeo covers the latest news in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region, writes about the regional threat of nuclear submarines, and looks at how RIMPAC is enhancing regional maritime capability. Senior Correspondent Julian Kerr provides an overview of companies participating in the RFT for new landing craft under Land 8710 Phase 1, and deployable mine countermeasures. Multimedia Reporter Roya Ghodsi covers the RAN's recent Humanitarian Aid and Disaster Relief (HADR) efforts and gives an update on build and sustainment of the Guardian-class patrol boats. The ADM staff cover Saab's 9LV naval management combat system as well as key takeaways from the MilCIS 2021 conference in Canberra in February. Finally, Andrew Davies argues for a new approach to 21st century sea control.

Our From the Source interviewee this month is Chief of Navy Vice Admiral Michael Noonan.
