Electronic warfare (EW) is as important a component of modern military engagements as physical assets. We take a look at the latest technology under development to spoof adversaries with false information about forces and activities.

EW also holds a special place within the concept of operations of the Russian ground forces. We look into Russian EW strategy and technology.

Thales and the UK Royal Air Force have a long-running information exploitation agreement. We talk to Thales about how they work together to gain exploitable information from incrementally growing data sources.

Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri has started production on the first of two new-generation submarines, as part of the Italian Navy’s U212NFS ‘Near Future Submarine’ acquisition programme. We look at how Italian-built submarines will support the future navy.

And quantum computing offers new opportunities for faster than ever processing. But we ask whether it could also put even the latest cybersecurity measures at risk.
