Australian Defence Force Transformation: The Hardened and Networked Army

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

In the fired of International Relations there exists controversy over whether or not a Revolution in Military Affairs (RMA) is occurring. This case employs the recent transformation of the Australian Defence Force to validate the ‘revolution’ argument. As Australia's role in the Asia Pacific security environment grows, there is a correlative need for its military to evolve. The ADF has embraced change, primarily through its Future Warfighting Concept (FWC) and the doctrine of a Hardened and Networked Army (HNA).
