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 first edition: Giant leaps for un-manned kind. 

In our inaugural issue, we take a look at people and how technology can affect our performance and protection, as well as a review of robotics and autonomous systems. Other topics to expect:

Technologies that will transform training

When fatigue is a matter of life and death

How human-machine teams will change
