Welcome to the May edition of ADM: Cyber in Defence.
Managing Editor Katherine Ziesing opens with an editorial on the perception of ICT systems in Defence as ‘not materiel-related and not core business’. ICT should instead be thought of as a weapons system, with Estonia’s experience in 2007 evidence of how ICT infrastructure is critical to modern society.
Katherine Ziesing also talks to Head of Information Warfare Division MAJGEN Marcus Thompson, Deputy Editor Nigel Pittaway delves into the completion of the Lead-in Fighter Capability Assurance Program at RAAF Williamtown, and also reports on LIMA 2019, which took place in Malaysia in late March.
Senior Correspondent Julian Kerr examines Navy’s progress on maritime UAS and Online Editor Ewen Levick covers the renaissance of Australian aerospace engineering.
We also have extensive Budget 2019 coverage and analysis from Katherine Ziesing and ASPI’s Marcus Hellyer.
Our From the Source interviewee this month is Rohde & Schwarz Australia Managing Director Gareth Evans.
