Welcome to TechWatch

Today’s defence industry is ill-informed on which technologies might fundamentally disrupt it in the future. In order to adopt the very best innovations and processes in current and future operations, we need to keep in touch with developments in industries outside of our own.

TechWatch is a comprehensive assessment of technologies that will change the face of defence. Our experts study tech trends and developments, whilst also considering the practical applicability of them in our customers’ markets.

With a rich understanding of defence and national security, we are well equipped to guide you on where to place your technology bets for the future.


The second edition: Power struggle

In Issue Two, we explore the latest technology trends and issues from all industries and particularly the alliance between commercial and defence and security markets. Specifically, we address the potential for data fusion to unlock a host of opportunities previously unimaginable, and the power requirements of the future. Other topics to expect:

  • neuromorphic chips, edge computing and the information advantage
  • turning soldiers into self-sustaining power sources
  • the rise of the electrified warfighting platform
  • is the lithium ion battery about to die?
