The Military History Society of NSW ‘s October lecture will feature former RAAF Group Captain Peter Hayes who will discuss the evolution of Information Warfare in the ADF over the period 1960 – 2000 on Saturday 6 October.

This fascinating four decades will be viewed through the lens of an Air Force experience of post-war transition for combat operations in the “Modern Age”. In the 1960s, the Air Force led the ADF adoption and deployment of computing systems and in the late 1990s, reorganised its information operations to enhance conventional warfighting capabilities which were later to be comprehensively adopted and adapted across the Defence organisation and headed by a one-star Chief of Cyber Command from 29 January 2018.

It is an evolution, deeply rooted in diverse areas ranging from defence strategy, capability and operational tactics, force organisation and roles, science and technology research, equipment hardware and software design and maintenance, procurement, commercial product development, evaluation and testing, physical security, intelligence, and media use.
