Recorded Lecture: Defence and Security in Difficult Times by Sir Brian Burridge

Originally presented on Tuesday 13th April 2021 to the RAeS Boscombe Down Branch

With the Government’s Integrated Review and Defence Command Paper having been published in the second half of March, this lecture will give some first impressions on the likely effectiveness of Britain’s defence posture in addressing the threats of the future, not least the increasing need to be doctrinally and practically equipped for fighting in the grey zone.

The lecture will also seek to analyse the likely adoption of advanced technology and the evidence that this will be pulled-through to future capability, particularly in combat air. In so doing, it will draw conclusions on the impact on the nation’s science ecosystem and especially the Defence Technology and Industrial Base.
