The flashpoints of the latter half of 2014 – the Ukraine crisis, a hot conflict in Gaza, the brutal rise of ISIL in Iraq and Syria, and the territorial clashes between China and its neighbours – make it one of the more eventful years in recent memory for global security. The economic pressures choking military budgets in Western countries these last few years remain, but governments and defence ministries are finding the funds to bolster military capabilities where necessary. The outlook for the armoured vehicle market is more compelling than it has been since the 2008 economic downturn triggered widespread anxiety and the post-Iraq hangover that resulted in sluggish demand and supply.

Based on a survey of 205 senior executives and professionals within the armoured vehicle domain, including both commercial and military respondents, this report explores how the future of the global armoured vehicle market is likely to evolve over the next decade.

Topics examined in the report include; regional market opportunities; government and military R&D investment priorities; the key challenges facing armoured vehicle manufacturers over the next decade and armoured vehicle design requirements.

Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing as it is more commonly known, will transform military supply chains and profoundly change the dynamics of the aerospace and defence (A&D) industry. The technology is not new – the process of creating a 3D object by adding layers of material has been around since the 1980s – but it’s only recently been identified as a viable option for large scale manufacturing rather than for low volume rapid prototyping. Additive manufacturing (AM) is pushing engineering boundaries, allowing companies to make complex objects and products never before possible. The sector is a natural fit for 3D printing then – the A&D industry prides itself on ‘the art of the possible.’
The outlook for 3D printing in aerospace and defence by Andrew Elwell - Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing as it is more commonly known, will transform military supply chains and profoundly change the dynamics of the aerospace and defence (A&D) industry.

Twitter can be a great tool to help users learn about and understand issues in the defence industry. It offers instant, relevant and, if you’re following the right people, reliable information. Twitter also allows users to easily read a wide range of opinions and quickly appreciate many different angles on the same story. It can be beneficial to journalists and commercial organisations alike so the team here at Defence IQ thought it would be useful to share our top rated Twitter accounts with.

This is a subjective list of our top defence and security accounts to follow on Twitter, not a definitive one. The following list is not in rank order and categories have been assigned in random order. There are many more people, companies and blogs you should be following on Twitter, but these are just our Top 100...

As more scrutiny is placed on military and civil maritime reconnaissance and surveillance capabilities – with the search for MH370 particularly highlighting the difficulty in delivering effective wide area maritime surveillance – nations are evaluating their current operations and asking how they can deliver enhanced maritime domain awareness.

With news of Philip Hammond taking over from William Hague at the Foreign Office this week, speculation began about who would be appointed the UK’s new Defence Secretary. First Iain Duncan-Smith was mooted as a potential candidate and then Michael Gove was briefly in the frame after the rumour mill died down about the would-be sensational return of Liam Fox to the MOD.

The British military’s communications strategy is in the process of a shakeup. Where before there existed two ‘universes’ – that of information operations and psyops, and that of public relations, media ops and marketing – the emerging tactic is now in bridging the gap to better coordinate a full spectrum approach to Ministry of Defence communications. Such a move should see benefits to all aspects of MOD functions, from recruitment to operations, but it carries the need for a complex adjustment and one that other nations may see as controversial.

This 40-page report explores the use of social media in the defence industry. It is primarily focused on the commercial sector, considering what benefits, if any, social media offers to defence contractors and organisations. Based on a survey of defence professionals, the report also examines the use of social media within a wider context, looking at how the defence media and journalists are utilising social media as a tool to learn more about the industry and engage with suppliers.
The analysis of the survey data has been supplemented with proprietary interviews and desktop research. The majority of survey respondents were from the commercial sector, accounting for 68% of total responses. This includes representatives from government organisations and prime contractors, 2nd and 3rd tier suppliers and other defence-related agencies. Defence media professionals (22%) and ‘other’ respondents (10%) complete the grouping of those surveyed.

Japan has changed its constitution. Or, rather, has “reinterpreted” it.
Shinzo Abe’s Cabinet announced recently that it approved the constitutional reinterpretation to allow Japan a “limited” right to collective self defence. The decision was taken to overturn a 67-year ban on allowing the Japanese Self-Defence Force to assist close allies should they come under attack following heightened tensions in the region.

Pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine are believed to have been behind the attack at 35,000 feet, possibly with the use of a Soviet-era BUK missile launcher. Russia’s Vladimir Putin is blaming the Ukrainian government for the downing but US officials are suggesting bringing down a commercial jet at that altitude cold not have happened without Russia’s help.

Unprofessional HR department. Firstly I was told that they really like my CV and my cover letter and called me for an interview immediately. Later I was told I am over qualified for the job. HR should look into applicant's CV properly before asking applicants to go for an interview. They should not have wasted my time.
