Directed Energy Weapons: High-Power Microwaves

Part 1 and Part 2 covered particle beam weapons and their technology, respectively. In this part we look at high-power microwaves (HPMs). In the era dominated by electronic warfare and smartweapons systems...

Precision-Guided Munitions: Radar-Guided Weapons (Part 4 of 4)

Radar guidance like infrared (IR) homing guidance is predominantly used in surface-to-air and air-to-air guided weapons. While IR homing guidance is largely employed in short and medium operational ranges, radar guidance...

Resurgence Of Space-Based Solar Power

If successful, space-based solar systems can be sustainable and inexhaustible long-term solutions for meeting power requirements for the entire world. Solar panel arrays have been used to power space stations and satellites...

Optronic Sensors: Gyroscopic Sensors (Part 4 of 6)

Read Part 3 Operational basics, salient features and military specific applications of ring laser gyroscopes and fibre-optic gyroscopes are discussed in this part of the article. Gyroscopic sensors constitute an essential component of inertial...

Multi-Layered System Solution That Tackles Complex Drone Threats

D-Fend Solutions and Liteye Systems have developed SHIELD-Cyber, an integrated system for a multi-domain defense system. The concept of drones may sound a fresh concept and may have a large scope in...

Fire Control Systems: The Electronics Behind Big Guns (Part 2 of 3)

To shoot a target, the gun of a tank or self-propelled gun (SPG) has to be oriented at a particular angle with respect to horizontal and vertical planes. These two angles...

Precision-Guided Munitions: Laser-Guided Munitions (Part 2 of 4)

Laser-guided munitions are the most widely exploited electro-optically-guided precision-strike munitions on various land based, sea based and airborne military platforms, such as main battle tanks, armoured fighting vehicles, ships, fighter aircrafts...

Wireless Technology for Defence

The defence industry is turning to a new generation of systems for faster, cheaper and more flexible communication, security and more. Communication is essential for military operations, although it is difficult to...
Ripple Open API

Open API the Future Of Radar?

The standard applications of the radar after the mention of the word comes to mind, are usually associated with aerospace, defence and military applications. But as the technology takes strides in...

Precision-Guided Munitions: Guidance Techniques (Part 1 of 4)

Precision has always been one of the five most important attributes of a weapon, with operational range, striking power, volume of fire and portability being the other four. The state-of-the-art precision-guided...
