All military forces have launched programs to develop laser weapons mounted on combat vehicles, vessels or aircraft. Directed energy and laser weapon systems are a proven solution that effectively addresses tech-driven threats with more accurate, flexible and affordable performance than offered by traditional ballistics. Today, laser weapons are one of the more efficient solutions to counter drone threats which are now deployed on the modern battlefield to conduct combat missions.

According to information released by the Russian MoD (Ministry of Defense on July 15, 2020, Russian army artillery units of the motorized rifle formation of the Eastern Military District deployed in Buryatia destroyed a column of adversary hardware from Grad BM-21 multiple launch rocket systems and 152mm 2S3 Akatsiya self-propelled guns using reconnaissance drone at Tsugol range in Transbaikalia, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

All military world powers have joined the race to create laser weapons. They have to easily destroy intercontinental ballistic missiles, spacecraft, and other arms and hardware. So far, the task is to destroy adversary optics or small drones and mortar mines at best, the Independent Military Review writes.

Inventor Shyam Chaurasia has developed 'Smart Defence Goggles' that can operate and fire weapons up to 1.5 km away and demonstrated the technology at the Ashok Institute of Technology and Management in the northern Indian city of Varanasi.

Israeli company Plasan has developed a wide range of vehicles specially designed to be used by Police and Homeland Security Forces. Plasan has vast experience as a global supplier of Armored Vehicles for Police and Homeland security (HLS) missions. With a range that fulfills every need from the lightest covert armored vehicles, right up to the largest truck-based Armored Riot Control Vehicles, Plasan can answer the requirements of any local security services.

Multiple Launch Rocket Systems (MLRS) is one of the most important weapon systems in the arsenal of the Russian army. It is used by rocket troops and artillery units of the Russian Federation Armed Forces. The MLRS is designed to destroy any multiple targets, light-armored vehicles and armored materiel, artillery units, tactical missiles, command posts, communications centers, and other hostile infrastructure.

The main requirement to MLRS is to deliver a rapid precision massive strike. They have to be equipped with digital fire controls to compute parameters, strike and destroy the target in minutes. MLRS have to interact with drones and automatic controls. The round of munitions also changed. New unguided missiles with increased precision, sophisticated flight trajectory and ability to maneuver were designed.

U.S. Army researchers developed a new way to protect and safeguard quantum information, moving quantum networks a step closer to reality. Quantum information science is a rapidly growing interdisciplinary field exploring new ways of storing, manipulating and communicating information. Researchers want to create powerful computational capabilities using new hardware that operates on quantum physics principles.

The Victory Day military parade on June 24, 2020, displayed the latest Russian weapons. Derivatsia air defense, TOS-2 flamethrowers and other hardware were for the first time presented to the public. The most secret Tornado-S Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) also drove in Red Square. The Independent Military Review writes about MLRS prospects.

According to information published by the U.S. Army website, on July 2, 2020, the Office of U.S. Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering – Global Capability Programs Office, Foreign Comparative Testing Program – recently partnered with the U.S. Army Futures Command to test and evaluate French Danielson aircraft engine for use in UAS (Unmanned Aerial System).

According to information published by the Russian Press Agency TASS on June 29, 200, Russian engineers conduct tests on controlling combat robots "Marker" with voice commands, with commanders issuing orders to the robotic complex in the same way they do with human soldiers, says Oleg Martyanov, head of the Russian Foundation for Advanced Research Projects’ National Center for Development of Technologies and Basic Elements of Robotics.

On June 9, 2020, the first display of the upgraded version of the Soviet-era BRDM-2 armored reconnaissance and patrol vehicle designated the Bekas BRDM-2MB, organized by the Military-Technical Society Interregional Public Organization for the Promotion of the Study and Operation of Military Equipment, was held in Ruzsky District of the Moscow Region together with enterprise B-ARMS LLC, Defense Studies reports.
