Volume 14 Articles


As we come to the close of 2014, we have seen the expansion of many modernisation programmes, others that have been in the works for years come to a conclusion, or advance into their final phases, and still the addition of new programmes. There have been increases in defense budgets, as well as some intriguing Requests for Information and titillating concepts and prototypes rolled out at the various major industry shows.

All in all, it has been a year that proves the global soldier modernisation market continues to thrive, with a particular focus on technological advancement and innovation in networked soldier technology, C4ISR, sustainability and lethality. We are finally seeing delivery on the promise of the modernisation of the dismounted soldier’s outfit, and personal protection equipment, so much so, that a typical warfighter today, is barely recognizable, as compared to his counterpart of just five years ago.

Again, to indicate just how far and fast the industry is now moving forward, take a look at our Programmes at a Glance, which has been completely updated.

Look for some big changes in 2015, not only among the industry and Programmes, but here at Soldier Mod. We will have some exciting new content available in addition to our issues of the magazine, webportal and e-reader versions with new services such as an ongoing blog, regular Newsletters and a soon to be launched YouTube Channel. Anyone interested in contributing content to these platforms, please contact me directly, particularly if you have video content you would like to share.

As always if you have any questions, comments and views please send them to me, good or otherwise, we take everything on board to improve the quality of the information that you get.
Please continue to use the online portal for all your news and event info, and to answer any technical questions you may have. The journal is also available to download in E-Reader format, free of charge, at the above address.

Here’s to all for a good 2015.
