Today’s defence scenarios require absolute dominance of the airspace, irrespective of the threats and the operational complexity. The need for Integrated Air and Missile Defence (IAMD) solutions is even more significant since they allow a synergistic approach and the coordination in real-time of all available sensors and weapons, making it possible to counter any kind of threats. The advanced radar technology of Leonardo's KRONOS family fits perfectly into this ecosystem.

According to information released on November 4, 2021, Raytheon Missiles & Defense, a Raytheon Technologies business, in partnership with the Office of U.S. Naval Research, completed successful demonstrations of the Network Cooperative Radar program, an advanced radar system solution that supports the U.S. Navy’s goal of creating distributed sensing networks to defend against evolving threats. NCR supports the Navy’s Distributed Maritime Operations concept by giving electromagnetic maneuver warfare capabilities to the fleet.

According to information released by BAE Systems, the British Navy aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth is equipped with the latest generation of wastewater treatment systems. The Elizabeth entered service into the Royal Navy in December 2017. The ship has gone above and beyond statutory compliance, with extra commitment to environmental protection demonstrated by installing a treatment plant that is capable of gathering and treating all wastewater prior to storage or discharge.

In July 2020, it was announced that the Chinese Navy has deployed its latest long-range bomber aircraft called H-6J, which is based on the Soviet-made Tupolev Tu-16 twin-engine jet bomber, and built under license in China by the company Xi'an Aircraft Industrial Corporation. Recent pictures released on the Chinese TV CCTV showed that the H-6J is able to carry YJ-12 anti-ship cruise missiles.

Earlier this week, Egypt's President Al-Sissi accompanied by UAE crown prince Mohamed Bin Zayed inaugurated a new naval base on the northwest coast of Egypt bearing the name of the July 3 Naval Base in the Jargoub area, about 180km far from the Egyptian-Libyan borders.
