David Davidian
Collaboration and sharing of data across the command structure continues to be a crucial factor in UAV systems.

In the shadow of a countrywide purge and campaign of arrests following last month’s failed coup d’etat, Turkey has escalated its operations in restive Kurdish districts.

20.07.2016 TURKISH COUP D’ÉTAT STILL IN PROGRESS: CONFLICT KEEPS TURKEY IN TURMOIL
By Harut Sassounian
Most Armenians became ecstatic last Friday upon hearing that a military coup was in progress to topple Turkey’s President Erdogan. Even I was caught up in a momentary euphoria, until I recalled that while Erdogan is a fascist leader, the Turkish military is far worse! During the past four military coups d’état in Turkey -- 1960, 1971, 1980 and 1997 -- when generals shot their way to power, wholesale jailing, torture, and killings ensued.
