  • West Africa’s contemporary threat vector in the context of armoured vehicle operations and requirements

    There is an enduring threat of militant and insurgency operations and a growing complexity of contemporary threats presently causing risks to internal security across Africa. This, coupled with the lack of updated armoured vehicle equipment, programmes and training, has meant that sub-Saharan defence budgets are being focused towards modernisation plans, procurement priorities and indeed the investment and strengthening of local industrial bases to promote stability in Africa. learn more

  • The highs and lows of establishing airborne policing

    Police aviation units offer an invaluable service to officers on the ground. From enabling a clear aerial view to help command make the right tactical decisions, transporting personnel and civilians into and out of areas of trouble, and to recording live video evidence from an enviable vantage point, it is a resource that cannot be underestimated. learn more

  • The Road to Cartagena: Part I

    The fight against the world drug problem is a joint and shared responsibility that must be assumed in a coordinated manner with respect to every link in the drug chain: demand, production, trafficking, distribution, diversion of precursor chemicals and controlled substances used in the production of illicit drugs, asset laundering, the trafficking of firearms and other connected crimes. Furthermore, a balance must be maintained between reducing demand and controlling supply so that the tasks at either end of the spectrum are mutually reinforced within the scope assumed by politically and legally binding agreements. learn more

  • NSA leaks forces defence sector to confront big data future

    It is perhaps no revelation to say that, when compared to the private sector, governments have been largely slow to engage with the big data movement.

  • Arctic Patrol: Market Outlook

    Close to 15% of the world’s undiscovered oil reserves are believed to lie in the Arctic. With climate change making these natural resources more accessible, fears for future conflict in the region are well publicised.

  • Overseeing freedom of information requests

    The United Kingdom enacted the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act in 2000, with full provisions coming into force in 2005. Creating a general right of access on request to information held by public authorities, the multi-million dollar initiative has become an important symbol of the nation’s consideration to civil liberties, but with the huge demand for information, and a history of independent systems functioning across multiple bodies, the process to fulfilling public expectations can often be slow, if not impossible. learn more
