Quieter, more sustainable bases are not just more efficient, they are also safer and more survivable. We take a look at the latest technologies for energy-efficient military bases and find out how they help to keep personnel safe.

Also in this issue, we catch up with the rapid evolution of UAV designs, speak to Lockheed Martin about its work on the US Air Force’s jet-based laser weapon, and take a look at BAE Systems’ plan for a digital shipyard in Adelaide.

Plus, we visit Cranfield’s Centre for Defence Chemistry to hear how its explosives specialists are working with the MoD and defence manufacturers, and find out whether autonomy has a future in military vehicles.
