The Krasukha, a Russian-manufactured electronic warfare system, plays a critical role in the Russian military's operations in Ukraine by targeting enemy radar systems from the ground. This equipment is specifically designed to jam signals across a broad spectrum, focusing on disrupting airborne electronics, such as those in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), radar-guided missiles, and other airborne systems.

NATO's Defence Innovation Accelerator for the North Atlantic (DIANA) program is broadening its scope with the inclusion of new locations, notably welcoming Finland into its expanding network. This follows the DIANA board's endorsement of a proposal to set up an accelerator and two testing facilities within Finland, aiming to foster the development of technology and innovation across both civilian and defense industries.

U.S. soldiers from the 1st Cavalry Division, typically engaged in field exercises with Abrams tanks, Stryker and Bradley combat vehicles, are now exploring a novel virtual synthetic training environment (STE) indoors, as reported by Michael M.

More than 4,000 U.S. service members, military civilians, and joint and multinational force members have united to explore the future of warfighting communications, operations, and maneuvers. Reporting from the 24th Theater Public Affairs Support Element, Spc. Jackson Gray details the ongoing Project Convergence Capstone 4, spearheaded by the U.S. Army Futures Command, which incorporates a sophisticated communications network to facilitate effective information exchange across various levels of experimentation.

A ground-breaking defence research project exploring the application of quantum technologies in defence in the areas of secure communication and navigation has successfully closed. QuantaQuest – Quantum Secure Communication and Navigation for European Defence - a 28-month EU-funded project under the Preparatory Action on Defence Research (PADR) held its final meeting in December 2023, after delivering on a variety of operational scenarios and developments.

Despite the war in Ukraine, the Russian defense industry continues to develop a new generation of combat vehicles including the Kurganets-25, the latest generation of Russian-made tracked armored IFV (Infantry Fighting Vehicle).

Traditionally, wars are fought over land, sea, and in the air. Future conflicts will no longer exist solely in those domains: the armed forces will encounter conflict in space, cyberspace and simultaneously across all five domains. How will the U.S. Army be ready for multi-domain operations? Test for multi-domain operations — using distributed live, virtual and constructive simulations. Deirdre Cascardo reports.

During the VUKUHLOME 2023, A South African army military exercise on November 22, 2023, the South African company SVI Engineering showcased for the first time its new MAX 3 wheeled armored vehicle in self-propelled mortar carrier at the South African Army Combat Training Centre in Lohatla, Northern Cape.

The German Air Force has been conducting tests on the Hensoldt Twinvis passive radar system, which has the remarkable capability to detect stealth aircraft, Laurent Lagneau comments in Opex360. In 2018, Hensoldt claimed that the Twinvis successfully detected two American F-35A stealth fighter-bombers at the ILA Berlin Air Show. However, Lockheed-Martin countered this achievement by explaining that the F-35As were equipped with Lüneberg lenses, making them intentionally detectable for safety reasons in civilian airspace. Nevertheless…
