Joining the Defence Connect podcast, Mark Goldsack of the UK government’s Defence & Security Organisation discusses how the UK government and industry are working to support the development of a sovereign industry capability.
Speaking to host Phil Tarrant at Pacific 2019, Goldsack discusses the growing relationships between the Australian and British Type 26 teams and how the lessons learned in the UK are informing Australia’s sovereign naval shipbuilding ambitions.
Goldsack also highlights the importance placed on interoperability at both the military and industrial level and how both governments are seeking to maximise the joint efforts to develop interlinked and sustainable industry and defence capabilities.
