Issue 125 • July 2021

Global heating is changing the Arctic more rapidly than ever. With sea lanes ice-free for more of the year and the region offering access to fossil fuel resources, it is increasingly likely to be a future theatre of combat.

In the first of our two-part Arctic warfare special we look at the region’s strategic importance and how militaries are preparing to operate in the high north. In the second we look at the two families of vehicles contending for the US Army’s Cold Weather All-Terrain Vehicle (CATV) programme, which makes no bones about being designed to support any future ground-based Arctic combat scenario.

Elsewhere in the issue, deep tech company Massive Analytic discusses how its technology enables defence and security organisations to use AI to perform electromagnetic operations, then gain and sustain military advantage across a wide range of domains. And we take a look at the latest developments in the counter UAS domain.
