Defence Reports


Defence Reports

Tangent Link in collaboration with Roger McDermott is proud to present a new series of defence reports, which aim to examine in detail the evolution and progress made by Russia’s conventional Armed Forces to pose a challenge to NATO and its partners, as well as its growing interests in the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific Region, in the context of the ongoing strain in the international security system stemming from Russia’s actions in Ukraine.

These reports are based upon close examination and analysis of specialist Russian language defence and security materials covering a broad range of issues to offer insight into the extent to which Russia’s military is progressing to develop its 21st century high-technology military capabilities. As such, they are tailored to suit defence companies and organisations with interests in Russia’s future role in the international security system and to keep track of its military modernisation programme. 


Roger N McDermott Roger N McDermott is Visiting Senior Research Fellow, Department of War Studies, King’s College, London and Research Associate, the Institute of Middle East, Central Asia and Caucasus Studies (MECACS), University of St. Andrews, Scotland. 

He specialises in Russian and Central Asian defence and security issues. His interests in Russia’s defence and security developments are mainly in the areas of defence reform, force structure, training, strategic exercises, military theory, perspectives on future warfare, planning and combat capability and readiness, as well as operational analysis.

  • Having had the opportunity to present and discuss our latest development and later on to personally meet and greet so many potential customers over the course of the day was great. We received very positive feedback from various sources and from our perspective as an exhibitor we are absolutely keen to join the next event this year.
  • It is a pleasure to work with not only professionals, but with people who also have a passion for our challenging environment.
  • Organisation and visiting clientele show a high number of representatives with SIGINT/EW background. This makes this event exclusively attended by customers with knowledge about products in our portfolio contrary to general big defence exhibitions.
  • Thank you very much for an excellent EW GCC 2016 event. As always, I enjoyed the specific opportunities, the guided networking, and of course the strategic discussions. It is my personal opinion that you’ve played a significant part in helping us to establish ourselves as a global player.
