Defence Industry Bulletin, April 2015 (Issue #5)
Defence Industry Bulletin is the FREE publication designed for professionals in the commercial security and defence sector that need the latest market intelligence and industry news with contributions from the world’s leading defence journalists covering topics from all corners of the industry with news categorised into Land, Sea, Air and Security sections.
Governments and commercial organisations are becoming increasingly aware of the need to enhance their cyber defences and bolster digital networks to plug vulnerability gaps. The challenge is identifying how best to do that and keeping up with rapidly evolving threats and technology.
In this issue of Defence Industry Bulletin, our expert correspondent assesses the vulnerabilities of critical national infrastructure in the UK and explores how existing challenges may demand a new security strategy. We explore the latest cyber threats and the vital opportunities for public-private security partnerships.
In The Briefing Room, we talk to the Head of Programmes for the Brazilian Air Force, Brigadier General Josê Augusto Crepaldi Affonso, about the acquisition of Saab’s Gripen E/F fighters and to understand more about the testing of the A-Darter missile.
Also in this issue we bring you insight into the latest developments of open architecture within the defence sector, we take a look at some of the major global procurements of armoured fighting vehicles, examine the rise in urban operations requirements, and we analyse new shock mitigation technology for fast boats.
