Features include:

The widespread use of small, armed UAS in recent conflicts has added a new dimension to vehicle protection. What lessons have been learned, and what solutions is industry working on to deal with the challenge?

Arctic interest: Preparing for future competition in the High North

The Arctic poses many challenges to operations, more than just extreme weather. In this article, Shephard looks at the barriers to communications in the region and the innovative solutions being developed by industry.
