Technical take off for UK Armed Forces
The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) has developed an innovative programme aimed at delivering battle winning technologies to the UK Armed Forces’ fleet of aircraft.
The tri-service collaboration is supported by industry partners, the Tactical Aviation Contested, Degraded and Operationally (T-CDO) limiting environments programme, and has been developed to seek battlespace solutions to problems from a range of emerging and evolving threats.
Tomorrow’s tactical environment is a very different place. The development of mega cities has created massive urban landscapes, too large and logistically important to simply bypass.
New threat systems are also coming into play. The rise of the drone in warfare continues, with small Remotely Piloted Air Systems (RPAS) now being available globally, cheaply, and providing unprecedented levels of sensing and strike capabilities to non-state actors.
