Stories for the defence and security industries and our local community.
The modern battlefield presents a broader range of challenges than ever before. Dismounted conventional troops and Special Forces require extreme tactical flexibility to combat advanced threats in complex environments.
Remaining unseen is the first line of defence on the modern battlefield. Requirements are rapidly growing for the protection of forward-deployed elements from increasingly sophisticated Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) threats. If you can’t be seen you are far less likely to be acquired, tracked and engaged.

When most people think of how a naval platform fights, the first thoughts are of guns, missiles and radar. These elements form part of the platform’s combat system and they are essential to achieving any navy’s mission to fight and win at sea. At the heart of the combat system is the Combat Management System (CMS), which integrates sensor information and provides situational awareness and decision support to the war fighter in both defensive and offensive action. This technology must be flexible and adaptable to enable rapid integration of new technologies to meet evolving threats. What is in the future for combat system development?
