The term Accelerated Warfare, mentioned in the Army’s Contribution to Defence Strategy document recently released by the Australian Army, defines the changes to the character of warfare at a rate faster than many of our processes and structures were designed for. This highlights the need for the Army to conduct and sustain land combat operations across a spectrum of conflict, and ensuring materiel is delivered where and when it is needed is vital. In order to achieve this, the Australian Army is turning its focus towards leveraging new technologies to build a Recognised Logistic Picture.
Ahead of the Combat Support Week conference, Defence iQ gained insight from a key speaker, Brigadier Todd Ashurst, Director General, Logistics, Australian Army. He discussed his objectives for streamlining the Army’s military logistics supply chain and the technologies would like to integrate within it, his views on the applications of autonomy, preparedness as the biggest challenge to logisticians and how he sees industry-military collaboration to help the Army meet its requirements.
