Focus and analysis weapons military technology of defence industry

The GLSDB (Ground-Launched Small Diameter Bomb) is a new generation of precision-guided ammunition that was jointly developed by the American company Boeing and SAAB from Sweden that can be launched from artillery systems such as the M142 HIMARS or the M270 MLRS (Multiple Launch Rocket System). The bomb can reach a target at a range of 150 km with an accuracy of 1 m.

German company Rheinmetall presents its new Fuchs A9 High Roof, an improved version of the Fuchs 6x6 armored vehicle that entered into service with the German army in December 1979. The new version features several improvements including a new powerpack, modern digital electrical vehicle architecture, and significantly improved characteristics in mobility, protection, and payload.

At AirShow China 2022, the Chinese company LoongUAV unveils its small military bombing drone for the first time. In recent years of local wars and armed conflicts, UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), as an emerging air combat force, have highlighted their combat effectiveness, and equipping UAVs has become an effective means to enhance their national defense strength at a lower cost.

Ballistic, or bulletproof, armour is used to protect vehicles against different threats. But it also makes them heavier, especially when seeking to protect against more powerful weapons. Taken together, armour and the vehicle structure constitute more than half of the vehicle’s weight, requiring more fuel and potentially making it harder to manoeuvre. In search of lighter armour, the European Defence Agency (EDA) launched a project on 20 October 2022 to use new advances in metallic materials for ballistic steels.

According to information published by the Russian defense industry on October 25, 2022, the Iskander-M (NATO reporting name: SS-26 Stone) tactical missile system can be equipped with new missiles, which will enhance its combat capabilities, said Valery Kashin, the Deputy CEO of the High-Precision Systems Company and General Designer of the Machine-Building Design Bureau Hero of Labor.

Developing world-class advanced technology for soldiers on the battlefield is a key part of the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command’s mission. Many of the technologies stem from partnerships between DEVCOM and its global network of academic, industry and governments, including a project with the DEVCOM Army Research Laboratory, located in Maryland; the DEVCOM-Atlantic International Technology Center Northern Europe, located in Germany; and the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramics Technologies and Systems, also in Germany.
