Welcome to the August edition of ADM: STEM in Defence.
Managing Editor Katherine Ziesing looks at the art of prevention in this month’s editorial. Katherine also covers this year’s ADM Women in Defence Awards, with winners announced at a gala dinner in July, and a snapshot of women on company boards as the defence sector struggles to bring women into leadership positions.
Gregor Ferguson discusses the relationship between innovation and change, Online Editor Ewen Levick looks at how to retain skilled women, and Katherine covers the capabilities of RUAG Australia.
This month’s edition includes an investigative report by Ewen Levick into the state of Navy’s fast boats, revealing that Navy may be unable to board large ships and its most experienced operators are likely suffering high rates of chronic injuries with no exposure management system in place.
Senior Correspondent Julian Kerr dives into underwater material advances, Katherine covers the shipbuilding STEM pipeline, and Deputy Editor Nigel Pittaway writes on successful SMEs.
This month’s From the Source interviewee is Naval Group Australia CEO and Future Submarine Program Director John Davis.
