Posted By on April 1, 2021 @ 16:00

In this episode, ASPI senior analyst Marcus Hellyer speaks to ASPI senior fellow Andrew Davies about his recent report, Coming ready or not: hypersonic weapons. They discuss what hypersonic weapons are, whether there are ways to defend against them, and who is developing them.

Next, ASPI’s Teagan Westendorf speaks with Professor Lisa Short, founder of P&L Digital Edge and group chair of the Global Foundation for Cyber Studies and Research. They talk about how Australia can enable big tech innovation, the challenges of funding innovation, and why it’s important for decision-makers to have an understanding of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and of the potential of innovation.

Finally, Anastasia Kapetas, The Strategist’s national security editor, talks with Hayley Channer, senior policy fellow with the Perth USAsia Centre, about the relationship between US domestic politics and foreign policy, President Joe Biden’s response to Covid-19, and how the Biden administration can rebuild trust with its allies in the Indo-Pacific.
