During Indo Pacific 2023, Grant McHerron was able to meet with David Goodrich OAM, Executive Chairman & Chief Executive at Anduril Australia & Asia Pacific, and Dr Shane Arnott, Senior Vice President Engineering at Anduril Industries. We discuss their Ghost Shark program that is utilising a number of local suppliers to deliver Australian developed autonomous undersea vehicles, and their focus on autonomous systems that complement rather than replace humans in Defence.

Our second interview is with Liam Catterson, business development manager at Lockheed Martin Australia, about the Aegis system. We discuss the development of the system, its integration into numerous operational environments, and its ability to link to vertical launching systems on land as well as sea. We wrap up by getting an insight into the future roadmap for Aegis within the ADF, with comparisons to the approach being taken by the US.
