Dr James Palmer, CEO and co-founder of Silentium Defence, joins host Phil Tarrant in this week’s episode of the Defence Connect podcast to discuss passive radar systems and the relationship between defence and space.
Dr Palmer reflects on his time with DST, how it led him to starting Silentium and what the business looks like as a growing SME. He reveals his view on the Australian space sector, the active role his team is playing in the development of it and recommendations for the next generation of academics rising through the ranks.
