This edition of the Defence Connect Podcast begins by analysing the technological breakthroughs undertaken by Northrop Grumman and the broader industry within the air warfighting domain alongside Chris Deeble, chief executive of Northrop Grumman Australia.
Dr Jackie Craig then draws on her scientific expertise and 26 years of service with the Defence Science and Technology Group to unpack how new intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) and air fighting capabilities will support the RAAF and broader ADF’s strategic mission. She continues by discussing how the Defence Science and Technology Group was able to broaden existing technologies, in order to make them adaptable to the ADF requirements.
The podcast finishes with an analysis of what technology is on the horizon over the next 20 years.
