Since you last picked up an ADM, two major policy documents have been released by the government; the Defence Strategic Update (DSU) and the Force Structure Program (FSP). The two combined effectively make a White Paper in all but name. These papers were then complimented by a new Cyber Security Strategy from the Department of Home Affairs soon after.

The FSP and DSU pledges $270 billion over the decade for military capabilities, including $15 billion for cyber war, $55 billion for land forces, $75 billion for naval forces and $65 billion for air. A further $7 billion is earmarked for space capabilities. The Cyber strategy will see $1.67 billion invested under its auspices.
