  • The JTAC Imperative

    At first glance, SrA. Zach Sherwood looked like a typical soldier on patrol in Gurbuz, Afghanistan. Clad in standard Army fatigues with an M-4 slung over his body armour, Sherwood moved in formation with the squad of Army scouts as the unit made its way toward the home of a suspected Taliban facilitator, located in this bustling district in the country’s eastern half. learn more

  • Enter ISIS: Why the Iraqi crisis is a growing threat to both global security and energy

    Nine months after ISIS declared independence, The Islamic State (IS) as it is now known, established itself as a caliphate under the rule of military commander Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, with its capital at the Abbasid city of Ar-Raqqah. At 140.3 billion barrels, Iraq has the world’s fifth largest stock of proven oil reserves and is the second largest producer in the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), outputting 3.3 million barrels per day. At about 4% of global supply, the news that Iraq’s oil-rich second city, Mosul, was seized by ISIS militants three weeks ago, sent the price of Brent crude to a three-year high of $113. Should ISIS manage to roll unimpeded through the Fertile Crescent and reach Iraq’s oil hub, do not discount the ensuing chaos pushing oil beyond the $200 dollar mark. learn more

  • False Dawn for the Aerospace and Defence Market

    UK Aerospace & Defence shares have outperformed the market since the start of the current bull market rally in August 2011 (with the past 12 months seeing sustained outperformance by defence and underperformance by aerospace). We regard valuations as being broadly fair for aerospace names, given the cyclical backdrop. But we are concerned that defence stocks have priced in a bottomed-out budgetary environment that we believe is still far away, and as such, we believe that they may be vulnerable to de-rating. learn more

  • Collaborative programs: A step towards more efficient defense procurement in the EU?

    Collaborative programs, those in which a number of states agree to procure the development, production and/or support of a weapon system together, have become a prominent feature of defense procurement in Europe. However, the management structures and legal regimes of such programs are often considered inefficient because of large cost overruns and delays. This paper critically analyzes the process of collaborative defense procurement, in particular how such activities are initiated and managed, and the applicable law in the European Union. On this basis, it makes proposals to increase the efficiency of collaborative programs, essentially by consolidating and streamlining the related management structures and decision-making process. This paper is built around a black-letter analysis of the recent studies and academic publications on the subject, relevant legislation, rules and jurisprudence, and on the wide experience of the author in the management of collaborative programs. learn more

  • Joint Procurement Lessons From Defence

    In the field of defence, collaborative procurement, whereby a number of states agree to purchase a major weapon system together, has been used for a long time. Despite being plagued by delays and cost over-runs, it remains a key feature of defence procurement in Europe. A number of studies have been conducted on joint defence buying, and many of the lessons learnt are applicable to fields other than defence. Here are a number of recommendations to ensure mistakes are not repeated… learn more
