In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, Brigadier Ian Langford and host Phil Tarrant discuss how the Australian Defence Force is readying for future conflicts, and how the military is well underway in preparing for warfare in environments characterised by disruptive technology and non-traditional threats.
The pair then analyse the multi-dimensional modernisation of the Australian Defence Force in line with Defence’s long-term investment strategy to overcome the nation’s threats.
Finally, BRIG Langford examines the role of national resilience and sovereign industrial capability to ensure a more robust defence force, specifically the importance of integrating the defence force’s supply chain with Australian industrial capability.
