Operating in Contested Urban Environments: The Aussies Look at New Technologies


1/22/18: The 2017 Contested Urban Environment Strategic Challenge (CUE17), a multi-national defence technology activity led by Defence Science and Technology, was held in Adelaide from 20 November to 1 December 2017.

The purpose of CUE17 was to investigate new and emerging technologies that can improve the intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities of soldiers when operating in cities during conflict so there is less risk to them and the civilian population.

The field research activity involved about 100 members of the Australian Defence Force and 80 researchers from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States.
