In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, host Phil Tarrant is joined by Major General Fergus (Gus) McLachlan AO of the Australian Army, who will discuss how the services are implementing modern leadership and best equipping themselves for the future.
MAJGEN McLachlan will discuss the recent Anzac centenary and how, as a department, Army is navigating the task of retaining the spirit and traditions of history, while also innovating in an industry that has become increasingly more collaborative. He will discuss how this collaboration is aiding the development and training of defence industry, and why some have concerns over the changing environment.
Acknowledging the differences between the Army today compared with the more traditional model, MAJGEN McLachlan will discuss why Army technology has previously been so segregated, and why there is a push going forward to create a network of technology that connects deployed land combat systems so that further technological developments could be implemented almost seamlessly.
