ADM is highly respected for its responsible and detailed reporting of defence capability acquisition in Australia. Among the trade journals, ADM is the preferred reading of the senior defence leadership in government and industry. The primary target readership group is CASG, plus key related organisations within the DoD, such as Defence Science Group and the Defence Support Group. ADM’s editorial content is highly regarded for its accuracy and independence, and is led by an outstanding and highly talented editor in Katherine Ziesing. The editorial team comprises specialist writers from across the defence domains.
The willingness of the senior defence leadership to engage directly with ADM through one-on-one interviews is an indication of the level of trust and respect that has developed between the magazine and its Defence audience in Australia. The ADM suite includes up to five defence-related conferences p.a., two newsletters each week, and the bi-annually produced Directory of Defence Suppliers.
