While the US dominates defence technology spending and exports, some experts are warning that a lack of government spending is creating a climate that discourages smaller companies from investing in new technology development. Meanwhile, in China the industry is booming, creating a breeding pool for competitive innovation. We ask whether the US needs to change its approach to military innovation in order to keep a competitive edge.  

We also check out the contenders for the US Navy’s new unmanned aerial refuelling system, take a look at the success of the Royal Air Force’s award-winning apprenticeship programme, and hear about the trends in defence logistics for the year ahead.

Plus, we look into the latest developments in regenerative medicine on the battlefield, and find out how nations with smaller defence budgets are driving innovation in submarine operations and submarine rescue.
