September 2021

The US Army has selected five teams to compete to design a vehicle to replace nearly 3,800 Bradley infantry vehicles. We take a closer look at the programme and the competitor vehicles.

The Ministry of Defence has signed a £250m contract with Team Tempest for the next phase of the endeavour to develop the next generation of combat aircraft. We look at what’s next for the Future Combat Air System.

Sea Machines and Viasat are collaborating to equip autonomous vessel systems with reliable satellite communications even in denied environments. We find out the potential benefits for military vessels.

We also take a look at how new breaching grenade technology developed by the UK Government and licensed to Energetics Technology will improve explosive method of entry operations and improve safety for operatives.

Our September issue goes to press shortly before DSEI 2021, this year’s most hotly-anticipated defence event, opens its doors to exhibitors and delegates. This year, Global Defence Technology is the DSEI media partner for the Future Tech Hub. We’re looking forward to seeing you there.
