TechWatch - Our quarterly horizon-scanning technology publication

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 sixth edition: Net-zero heroes

Our sixth edition covers more ground than normal; literally and thematically. Our discussions are based on the physically disparate: from estates through to platforms; through to virtual teaming and collaborative culture. We address how the UK government legislation of net-zero 50 is designed to protect our environment, and how that will impact the way in which defence and security develops a new way of working in the coming years. 

  • Q&A with Lieutenant General Richard Nugee CV CVO CBE, who is spearheading UK MOD efforts to address net-zero 50
  • New life for old equipment: what technologies can help us take our legacy equipment into the future?
  • Q&A with Mark Signorelli, VP Business Development, Platforms and Services, BAE systems: exploring partnership ecosystems
