Industry fairs and exhibitions are the place where big defence business is done, with billions’ worth of contracts being signed at the major events each year. With Eurosatory & co cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it won’t be business as usual this year – but how will business be done? We speak to defence ministries and their suppliers to find out.

We also round up some of the equipment and technologies we would have seen unveiled at Eurosatory, and take a look at how armed forces are responding to an international crisis such as the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Also in the next issue, we take a look at the latest developments in electronic warfare in Japan, Australia, Russia and the US, check in on progress with major laser weapon projects, and dig into the defence industry’s most expensive and embarrassing design mistakes.
