Shephard’s Land Warfare International is the only global magazine dedicated to all elements of land warfare. The publication, which is distributed to a hand-picked audience of military and industry leaders, covers all aspects of the land battle.

LWI draws on the expertise of Shephard’s experienced staff of defence writers that span the globe.

The bi-monthly publication supplies readers with all the latest news analysis and keeps them up to date with the technologies and programmes that they need to know about.

The magazine is supplemented by a daily news feed, bringing live coverage from major exhibitions and events as well as all the latest company information.

Checks and balances

• Raytheon pitches common UAS controller
• USV conversion kit in MENA tests
• UGVs team up for demolition duty
• UK ScanEagles to be refurbed, redeployed
• Watchkeeper report details crash factors

From turbofans originally developed for business jets to miniature electric motors, the range of powerplant options for UAVs is greater than ever before.

The risk of a UAV being hijacked from its operator’s control by hackers or having its precious ISR data feed intercepted by a hostile party has led to the consideration of a range of sophisticated countermeasures.

Communication with and between UAVs and other sensor platforms is an essential part of ongoing special forces operations in theatres around the globe.

Monitoring of storms and gathering climate data is an increasingly common application for USVs, leading to greater understanding of global weather patterns.

Despite development work by multiple manufacturers, squad-level utility UGVs for dismounted troops have still not progressed beyond the user assessment phase.

Barry Trimmer, VP technical for ISR products at Thales UK, talks to Gerrard Cowan about the company’s plan to expand into the civil UAS market.
