UK's Icarus roadmap charts path to protection
The UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) and Leonardo have unveiled a future roadmap for the ‘Icarus’ Technology Demonstration Programme (TDP), designed to design, develop and implement Modular, Integrated Protection System (MIPS) standardisation for armoured vehicles.
Addressing delegates at the Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability conference in London on 13 November, programme officials described how an ‘equipment programme’ would run from 2020 to 2030, resulting in the fielding of MIPS active protection system (APS) technology across legacy and future ground vehicle fleets of the MoD.
Guy Davies, capability manager for Vehicle Systems at Leonardo explained to delegates how the first vehicle-fit …

Enhancing electronic support to achieve spectrum dominance within multi-domain operations (sponsored)
Activity in the Electro-Magnetic Environment (EME) is increasingly focused towards supporting digital sources. The rise of wide area networking, mobile communications and automation across civilian and defence applications, means key sections of the spectrum are highly congested and, from a military perspective, increasingly contested. This growth is likely to be sustained through the proliferation of devices exploiting digitally enabled functionality through automation, internet of things and space-based data services.
