In this episode, Defence Connect Analyst and Editor, Steve Kuper is joined by Chris Deeble of Northrop Grumman Australia, Platinum Partner of the Australian Defence Industry Awards, and two finalists in the Engineer of the Year category: Claire Milton of CASG and Akhlaquor (Aka) Rahman of OPEC Systems.
The four discuss defence industry’s response to the COVID pandemic and the way defence businesses of all sizes have pivoted to support the economic response and collaborated to support the Australian defence supply chain.
They also discuss Milton’s transition from the Royal Australian Air Force to CASG and supporting some of Air Force’s key air mobility programs and the evolution of Rahman’s career as an engineer and speciality in fuel security for defence.
The four also deep dive into their immediate goals, objectives and challenges they foresee over the coming twelve to eighteen months and what they believe set them apart from the competition for this year’s awards.
Defence Connect will continue to recognise the achievements of talented professionals in the lead up to the 2020 Australian Defence Industry Awards — despite a limited capacity to gather physically.
