In this episode of the Defence Connect podcast, hosts Phil Tarrant and Steve Kuper discuss the year that was for the multi-domain, intelligence and cyber capabilities of the ADF and key global allies as they continue to embark on a generational transformation of its platforms and capabilities and the role Australia’s growing defence industry is playing in this transformation.

As part of an ongoing series of the Defence Connect podcast leading up to the end of the year, the pair discuss the top-ranking stories in the domain, beginning with the increasing development and proliferation of autonomous and unmanned systems, across the land, sea and air domains as a key force multiplier. 

The pair then discuss the newly operational Satellite Ground Station near Geraldton, WA — delivered under Joint Project 2008 Phase 3F in partnership with BAE Systems Australia and an opinion piece by Michelle Price, CEO of AustCyber, and Alex Scandurra, CEO of Stone & Chalk where they discuss the need to nurture the development of a sovereign Australian cyber capability. 

Finally, Tarrant and Kuper discuss the fall out of a cyber attack against government, industry and Australian civilians in mid-June and the Government's commitment to securing and responding to the challenges posed by state and asymmetric cyber security threats.
