The Australian Defence Minister Richard Marles can take credit for introducing a new strategic term—‘Impactful Projection’.

Summary

This article by Marcus Hellyer, writing for ASPI, makes the following points:
  • Marles initially defined the term this way (paraphrased): ‘an ability to hold an adversary at risk, much further from our shores, across the full spectrum of proportionate response.’
  • The term might be novel, but there is an underlying message—greater combat power, force-projection capabilities and autonomous strike capabilities.
