  • An assessment of maritime security and piracy in Asia
    Not one Navy, Coast Guard or Air Force in all of Asia is content with their maritime security and anti-piracy capabilities.

  • 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.

  • Forward air control training in a coalition environment
    When it comes to calling in air support, there is never room for inaccuracy. As we continue along a road that takes us towards more precise operations, thanks largely to technological advancement, the results of any call for fire will always lie in the hands of the operators and ensuring that those troops remain in control comes down to effective, adaptive and dynamic training that reflects the modern battlespace as closely as possible.

  • F-35 News Round Up: 19th August 2014
    O, Canada, land of “peace, order and good government.” Land of compromise and polite politics. Land of turmoil over whether to buy the F-35. As in the United States, the fighter plane has become a rancorous political issue. What once looked like a sure buy of 65 planes has been bogged down by infighting and un-Canadian vitriol, and the purchase is on hold while Canadian officials consider whether to buy another plane.
