    This report aims to highlight to the wider Defence community the challenges faced by Defence Logisticians and the lack of priority that Defence leaders have placed on Logistics systems in the past. Its fundamental contention is that Defence will need to place greater emphasis on the Defence Logistics function if it is to meet the challenges of a more complex and challenging operating environment in the future. Given the complexity of the Logistics challenge, the report provides a high level overview of Defence Logistics.

    Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) functions are essential for effective operations spanning military, border protection and law enforcement activities, as well as in strategic decision-making. These functions provide greater situational awareness and better predictive intelligence necessary for superior decision-making at all levels. ISR synchronises and integrates the planning and operation of platforms, sensors, data, and people.

    The ISR process must be treated as an integrated process, moving it in complexity, speed, and effectiveness beyond the current model of inter-agency cooperation. Australia can continue its modest trajectory in improving ISR or it can drive step-change improvements that will necessitate adopting a whole-of-nation approach, achieving closer engagement with the public, accelerating the data-to-decision cycle by leveraging the benefits of Big Data, and synchronising ISR capabilities.
