TechWatch is 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.
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 eighth edition: TechWatch Live at DSEI
We’ve taken an entirely new approach for this edition of TechWatch, which is being produced at DSEI 2021 in London. As always, we look for defence’s most promising technologies - but this time, we’ll also meet the people who are building them.
As such, this TechWatch provides a series of in-show interviews with a range of innovative companies. Subjects include novel sensing, immersion and AI, robotic automated systems.
We also have two longer deep dive blog pieces. The first is a two-part series on hypersonics - how they work, the threat they pose, and the opportunities to defeat them. The second piece focuses on human augmentation, covering the application of science and new technologies to improve human performance.
