With 36 years in the Air Force before his transition into corporate, Warren Ludwig, director of international strategic development Australia, NZ and south-east Asia at General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, joins host Phil Tarrant to discuss General Atomics’ bid and the partnerships that they have created within the AIR 7003 proposal.
He will share his thoughts on the current state of the Air Force and discuss the shift that has occurred in the relationship between defence and industry, while also looking at the biggest challenges that the industry is facing at the moment.
Warren Ludwig will also unpack the role of General Atomics, their involvement with Australian universities and share insights into technology currently being developed that we are likely to see in the coming decade.
