120 mm pop-&-scoot mortars: while the idea of mounting mortars on vehicles is not new, the current trend is to develop systems that increase their efficiency by providing a higher degree of automation both in terms of loading and laying. Munitions, for their part are not trailing far behind development and increased effectiveness, with some today being guide. Biass, Eric H. 3075
A380 of course but a lot more ... there is no doubt that this year's show was stolen by the new Airbus that had made its maiden flight only a few weeks earlier and, although nothing very spectacular was to be announced on the military aircraft front, there was a lot of activity in the drone arena and a lot more going on behind the scenes. Keggler, J. 3011

Europe carries the tail light again: taking an eagle eye's view across the world map of unmanned aircraft, it only takes a few seconds to realise that in spite of its technological capabilities, Europe is the slow coach in terms of drone development and new operational ideas. Biass, Eric H. 846
From brick to chip: the objective of providing the individual dismounted soldier with integrated computing solutions is to generate a hub through which other electronic systems and information are managed, keyed and exploited from a single point on the man platform. This is easier said than done. Baddeley, Adam 3266
Hard shell: to improve survivability armoured fighting vehicles will get heavier before they get lighter. The US Army's claim that its 70-tonne M1 Abrams is the 'most survivable main battle tank in the world' is being tested each day in Iraq. Yet the army has suffered more armoured vehicle losses in the continuing 'stabilisation' phase of Operation Iraqi Freedom than in the six-week 'combat' phase. Kemp, Ian 4035

Pathways to enlightenment: for any mission to be successful real-time situational awareness is must. Yet being overloaded with data is akin to having to carry too much equipment--it will only serve to slow progression and help to confuse the warfighter. Cohesive information dissemination requires network-centric systems that filter and format the data prior to distribution. Keggler, Johnny 2125

Return of the one-o-five: the 105 mm gun might be regarded as the shooting star of the 20th century--its passage across the skies being a brief blaze of glory followed by oblivion. Yet, far from fading away, this ordinance is flaring back and becoming attractive for a wide range of duties. Hooton, E.R. 2277
