TechWatch 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.

Our fourth edition takes a deep dive into the domains of Air and Space. Specifically, we unpick the concept of manned-unmanned teaming in aerospace. We also explore the growing trend of small satellites, skim satellite technology and space debris.
