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 12th edition: Green Sky Thinking
In this edition we are exploring future fuels, reporting on new technological advancements, and assessing the role of commercial technologies within Defence.
To begin with, we take a deep dive into future fuels, through a sustainability lens, in collaboration with the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI). We delve into current and upcoming sustainable fuel alternatives, and assess the benefits and challenges of adopting these fuels into the Defence industry.
Our feature on distributed ledgers explores the underpinning technology behind cryptocurrency - not something commonly associated with Defence. We look at alternative applications of distributed ledgers and their potential role within Defence, focusing on how they can contribute towards smarter supply chains and more efficient operations.
We also report on the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 3034, where our innovation team discuss key trends and challenges, while outlining the latest technology developments in the commercial world.
Other highlights include:
- Q&A with Natasha Allden, CEO of Multiply
- Robot dogs that can climb walls
- Injectable hydrogel that stems bleeding
