August 2021

With navies across the globe looking at the potential of uncrewed or lean-crewed vessels, and ships designed to be more multi-role, warship design feels like it is on the precipice of a new revolution. We look at what defines a warship in the 21st century.

The British Army is transforming its global military communications and information management. The UK MOD’s £3.2bn MORPHEUS programme will scope the next generation of applications that will be used by military personnel deployed around the world to exploit information faster and enable better decision making.

We also take a look at the latest innovations in battlefield and military medical technology, including a recent exercise using Milrem’s casualty extraction UGV and the US Army’s search for new wound healing bandages.
