Adam Waldie, SEA 1000 capture leader for Thales, recently joined the Defence Connect Podcast to discuss his role in the program and Thales’ relationship with the Australian Defence Force.



In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, Adam Waldie returns with David Eyles, capture leader for the SEA 5000 program, where the pair will unpack their involvement across both programs. They will discuss the Australianisation process of technology and systems sourced from outside of the country and offer advice to SMEs on increasing their chances of gaining contracts with the major defence players.

The pair will also discuss the huge opportunity that the SEA 5000 program presents to SMEs, address when they are expecting there to be contractual developments in the SEA 1000 project and look at how these programs are likely to impact their roles going forward.
