Defence agencies are facing challenges that are complex and dynamic. These challenges are the result of evolving geopolitical tensions, rapidly advancing technological capabilities and the emergence of non-traditional adversaries. Additionally, an often unseen threat to many agencies is the increasing use of cyber warfare to disrupt and undermine their capabilities.
To maintain their ability to deter potential aggressors and achieve a competitive edge on the battlefield, defence agencies are faced with the need to modernise their current inventories of weapon systems, replace legacy IT systems and adopt technological advances and best practices from the commercial world. If undertaken correctly, these changes have the potential to significantly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of defence agencies and warfighters.
