Force Protection will be the major theme of our April 29 Defense Technology Edition. One lesson of the last decade of conflict has been that forward-deployed forces are increasingly vulnerable to attack by insurgent and hybrid weapons, from remotely detonated and suicide bombs to mortars. What technologies can keep them both safe and mobile?
One element of force protection is counter rocket, artillery and mortar technology: We look at current systems and trends. DTE will also cover issues related to the withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Plus: news from the LAAD aerospace, defense and security show in Rio de Janeiro, and from the Navy League's Sea-Air-Space in Washington.
