Global Defence Technology: Issue 38
14 April 2014 naval-technology.com

In this issue: How the British soldier’s kit evolved during operations Iraq and Afghanistan, the world’s nuclear arsenal, breakthroughs in networked simulation training for pilots, naval power shifts in the Asia Pacific region and more

Security concerns for the Sochi Winter Olympics in Russia were even higher than those for London in 2012. We review what security measures were put in place and whether they can be considered a success and ask whether the event will help bring long-term stability and tourism to the region.

We also examine the nuclear arsenal owned by key nations around the world, take a look at the booming biometrics market and review technological innovation in soldier kit that came out of urgent operational requirements during the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Moreover, we investigate emerging threats against military satellites and the most effective measures to protect such vital networks, take a look at new breakthroughs in networked simulation training for pilots and explore recent shifts of power and the drives behind increased naval procurement activity in the Asia Pacific region.

Next issue preview

In February, the British Army was drafted in to stem the tide of flooding that left parts of the UK inaccessible. We take a look at the role of the armed forces in helping out national emergencies, and the skills and equipment they bring on board that aren't otherwise available. We also explore a new generation of smart weapons, review Turkey's ambitious domestic equipment manufacturing projects and investigate the controversy surrounding Switzerland's plans to buy 22 Gripen fighter jets from Sweden.

Moreover, we find out how Europe's two revolutionary unmanned combat aircraft, the Taranis and the nEURon, compare in terms of capability, catch up with the latest developments in NATO's Ballistic Missile Defence roll-out and examine the future of BAE Systems' Scottish shipyards.
