    SDSR 2015: Rumour, insight and expectations

    Several decisions made in the 2010 Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) were lamented for being militarily unsound, with the House of Commons Defence Select Committee declaring “mounting concern” over the UK Armed Forces’ ability to accomplish their active missions.

    An overview of the Mexican security landscape

    This year the governments of Mexico and the United Kingdom have decided to celebrate the ‘Year of Mexico in the United Kingdom’ and the ‘Year of the United Kingdom in Mexico’. The objective of promoting better understanding between these two nations comes with both a cultural and economic benefit, with Mexico’s third biggest tourist group being residents of the UK (behind the U.S. and Canada). It is therefore appropriate that London-based Defence IQ is to host the MEXSEC 15 Summit this year in Mexico City with the aim of supporting the Mexican government to achieve peace through security cooperation.

    In efforts to stay ahead of threats to modern cities, more and more city planners are turning to advanced video surveillance equipment, taking advantage of developments in picture resolution, data storage and processing speeds. Of course, having cameras positioned in every corner of a city is only time- and cost-effective if there are strong systems in place with trained personnel to manage them.

    Air defence vital to Poland's national security, geopolitics in Europe

    This year, the Integrated Air and Missile Defence conference is branching out towards a special Eastern Europe-focused summit to be held in Warsaw this July.

It is perhaps a natural decision when considering Poland’s current geo-political situation and the emerging threats to national security, but it is worth noting that there are a number of programmes in the pipeline being eyed by the country’s leaders for potential investment and therefore further implications for the defence strategies of neighbouring states and of NATO allies.

    "Medical Operations Support by private industry is an excellent concept"

    Medical support operations have traditionally focused on trauma and emergency response and while these issues remain steadfast, the scope of operations is broadening at an alarming pace. Due to the complexity and unfamiliarity of recent operations, such as the Ebola case in West Africa, significant flaws in training, resources and logistics have been identified leading to potentially life threatening inefficiencies.
