In January 2021, after several incidents of the same dramatic kind already encountered in Afghanistan, the Barkhane force in Mali was bereaved by two jihadist attacks carried out with high-power improvised explosive devices (IED) containing about 40 kg of explosives, Laurent Lagneau recalls in Opex360. The very high danger presented by this type of attack has led the armies of many countries to develop means of detecting them and then protecting themselves as much as possible.

Imagine the possibilities of a self-driving vehicle on the battlefield. Engineers at the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation & Missile Center, or AvMC, don’t have to imagine it: they are building it. The Autonomous Multi-Domain Launcher takes a High Mobility Artillery Rocket System — or HIMARS — and modifies it with hardware and software to be controlled remotely and driven autonomously. Katie Davis Skelley, U.S. DEVCOM Aviation & Missile Center Public Affairs, reports.

According to information published by the Indian Ministry of Defense on August 4, 2022, Indian-made Laser-Guided Anti-Tank Guided Missiles (ATGM) were successfully test-fired from the Main Battle Tank (MBT) Arjun by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Indian Army at KK Ranges with support of Armoured Corps Centre & School (ACC&S) Ahmednagar in Maharashtra.

Soldiers from the XVIII Airborne Corps and 82nd Airborne Division are leading the U.S. Army’s transition to data-centric operations as they use new technologies to counter evolving threats. Leveraging Army Vantage, the Army’s enterprise data decision platform that connects to and draws data from new and legacy systems in any form at any scale, deployed units are configuring end-to-end operational applications to streamline the outload of forces, automated logistics status reporting, capture new unstructured data and make real-time, intelligent decisions. Capt. Matthew Visser reports.

According to information published on the Telegram account of the Belarus defense industry, on July 26, 2022, Belarus developed a new modernized version of the T-72B Main Battle Tank (MBT). The armed forces of Belarus have already conducted the first trial tests and the tank will be used in August 2022 during the tank competition in Russia.

BAE Systems’ Robotic Technology Demonstrator (RTD) successfully fired laser-guided rockets at multiple ground targets, with a human decision in the loop, during the U.S. Army’s tactical scenario at the EDGE 22 exercise at Dugway Proving Ground. This test marked the first time an APKWS (Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System) laser-guided rocket has ever been fired from a robotic combat vehicle (RCV).

Recent Google Earth images reveal construction at what appears to be a sophisticated laser system at a Russian space facility designed to blind adversary satellites, Brett Tingley reports in space.com. The construction is taking place at the Russian Ministry of Defense's Krona space facility near Zelenchukskaya in Russia's far southwest, home of the massive RATAN-600 radio telescope.

The U.S. Army’s most recent Soldier Operational Experiment, or SOE, confirmed the value position of Robotics and Autonomous Systems, also known as RAS, in a coalition environment, Jerome Aliotta reports on U.S. Army’s website. This is a position that provides their human counterpart with the following benefits: enhanced lethality, improved options, and a degraded threat.

Analysis of new Generation MBT (Main Battle Tank) in 2022, Part 4/4. At Eurosatory 2022, International Defense Exhibition that was held in Paris, June 2022, the French Company Nexter Systems presents the latest generation of the French MBT (Main Battle Tank), the Leclerc XLR which is a modernized version of the standard tank Leclerc in service with the French army featuring many new improvements in terms of mobility, firepower, and protection.

According to Lia Wong on Overt Defense, on July 4, 2022, the Feitian-1 hypersonic vehicle developed by the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics of Northwestern Polytechnical University successfully launched at a base in northwestern China, demonstrating for the first time in the world an operational kerosene combined cycle ramjet/rocket engine capable of smooth transition between at least four different propulsion configurations, which allows for efficient operation in every phase of flight and expanding the flight envelope of future Chinese hypersonic aircraft.
