Jonathan Mead, Royal Australian Navy, RADM

2018 has been a year dominated by naval shipbuilding in Australia. Defence Connect Podcast host Phil Tarrant is joined by Rear Admiral Jonathan Mead, Commander of the Australian Fleet, for an in-depth conversation about the $90 billion naval shipbuilding plan, industry opportunities and the operational utility of a larger fleet.

RADM Mead will unpack his experience across Navy’s growing procurement agenda, his current role and responsibilities within the service, and a focus on attracting and retaining the right talent within the broader ADF.

He will also address the media scrutiny surrounding shipbuilding programs, including the Hunter Class frigates and Attack Class submarines, and how the upcoming ventures will shape Australia’s naval shipbuilding sector going forward.

Finally, the pair will also discuss how Navy is committed to improving relationships with industry to increase the speed and efficiency of the procurement process while ensuring that Navy maintains its technological edge now and into the future.
