  • Obama, Cameron call for greater European defence spending ahead of NATO summit
    Barack Obama and David Cameron are set to lead calls for European leaders to increase defence spending at this week’s NATO summit in Wales. NATO demands member states spend over 2% of gross domestic product (GDP) on defence but few other than the UK adhere to these criteria. Following a turbulent 2014 that saw Russia annex Crimea, increased violence in Gaza and the renewed militant threat in Iraq and Syria, Obama and Cameron will use the NATO summit as a platform to ask members to take security more seriously.

    When Switzerland voted No in the referendum to sanction the acquisition of Saab’s Gripen as its next generation fighter jet, it posed a problem for Sweden. The two countries had agreed a co-financing deal to buy the JAS 39 Gripen E to share development costs but when the Swiss public voted against the proposed spending of public money, Sweden needed to decide if it would go ahead.

  • Is the Australian Coast Guard too reliant on Defence?
    The creation of the Australian Border Force (ABF) within the Department of Immigration and Border Protection will bring together people, capabilities and systems with a focus on law enforcement in border operations. The ABF will work across all points of entry to Australia helping bring a multitude of roles into a focused, centralised agency. However, the ABF will not include operations across the maritime domain which will remain the responsibility of Border Protection Command, nor will it include the Department’s flagship operation (Operation Sovereign Borders), leaving the ABF without a critical, and very public, element.

  • Assessing Australia's power projection capability
    Much has been made of the Australian Navy's procurement of Landing Helicopter Dockships (LHD) and Air Warfare Destroyers (AWD) with the Government citing improved capability to respond to humanitarian crises as a leading reason for the acquisitions. Given the ships the LHD is replacing (Manoora and Kanimbla) this reasoning appears justified, yet when the huge increase in offensive power projection capability is considered, the Government’s reasoning isn't quite accurate. Similarly, the AWD provides Australia with the capability to sustain power projection operations by providing advanced air defence - a capability currently missing from the Australian Navy - based on the Aegis combat system.
