7th Annual Northern Australia Defence Summit will be a high level policy-driven summit with a theme and focus on ‘Mobilising defence capability and force posture in Northern Australia’ that will examine key issues including: defence economics, strategic policy, implications from the white paper and first principles review, border protection and surveillance, US force posture initiatives, USMC bilateral exercises, engagement with regional partners, defence infrastructure and estate maintenance. The event will hear from ministers, defence officials, military commanders, industry leaders, prime contractors, defence SMEs, strategic analysts, academics and consultants.
The Australian Industry Defence Network (AIDN) will be holding their annual Gala Dinner and Defence Industry Awards that will coincide with this year’s Northern Australia Defence Summit.
