Who We Are

ADM draws on the immense experience and knowledge of our editorial team, who have almost a century of combined experience covering defence issues across the globe, as well as our network of reporters across Australia and New Zealand. ADM prides itself on providing accurate, important information on Australia’s defence marketplace - information that often is found nowhere else. Consequently, ADM Group is in a unique position in the Australian marketplace. Every member of the Defence Organisation is entitled to receive ADM to their desk or in their inbox, and has preferential access to all ADM events. This is recognition of the brand’s critical role in reporting on the defence/industry sector in Australia. ADM’s signature editorial offerings include ADM’s Top 40 Defence Contractors Survey - the only longitudinal survey of its kind in the world – and the From the Source interview feature, a mainstay for industry leaders, Ministers and ADF service chiefs.

Our audience, your customer

As a result of our focused, high-impact reporting, Australian Defence Magazine is the preferred reading of the senior defence leadership in government and industry, and this audience is now engaged across the breadth of ADM Group’s offerings. Australia’s Capability, Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG) is the primary target readership along with the key related organisations within the Department of Defence, such as Defence Science Technology Group (DSTG), Chief Information Officer Group (CIOG) and the Security and Estate Group; as well as defence industry in Australia, from major primes to SMEs.



ADM is focused on delivering detailed and accurate coverage of current and planned defence acquisition projects, defence policy (and especially defence industry policy) and defence industry developments in Australia and NZ. Our articles are read and referenced across the Department of Defence, Defence industry, and academia.


Our features content looks to provide updates and context on longterm trends in Australia’s defence marketplace. We look for major developments at the intersection of policy and technology, and provide indepth coverage of these trends as they shape Australia’s defence environment.


ADM’s digital offerings are built on digital news reporting, which provides timely and relevant news updates each business day to our audience, and our podcast, which provides a vehicle for experts and decision-makers to discuss topics and subjects of longer-term interest to our audience.

TOP 40

ADM’s Top 40 Defence Contractors Survey has expanded over the years to include Top 20 SMEs, Top 20 ANZ SMEs and a range of other metrics across the Defence Industry. While purely voluntary to take part, it gives a detailed snapshot of the performance of Defence Industry and is cited extensively across government, industry, academia and beyond.


Our From the Source interview feature is designed to provide the interviewee with a vehicle for discussing big issues without necessarily focusing on matters of immediate news value and without a confrontational atmosphere. Aimed at speaking with Managing Directors/CEOs/Defence senior leaders, we look to explore some of the big challenges faced by organisations.

Events and Programs

ADM Group has a strong portfolio of events and award programs across Australia, including the ADM Congress, regional summits, the ADM Women in Defence Awards and the ADM 30under30 Awards.

Hosted every February in Canberra, this prestigious event gathers a wide range of defence, government, industry and academia speakers – including Ministers, service chiefs, and Departmental leadership - to hear the latest insights from leaders and network with colleagues from around the nation and globe.
