Monthly briefing from the Open Briefing intelligence unit on developments in remote-control warfare.
Recent changes in personnel levels, coupled with equipment modernisation and operational experience, has made Russia’s elite airborne force (the VDV) an even more formidable force. This briefing provides an update on recent developments in the conflict against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. Islamic State has used aerial drones for reconnaissance and battlefield intelligence in Iraq and Syria and has attempted to use aerial and ground drones with explosive payloads to attack Kurdish troops.
Open Briefing is currently running a crowdfunding campaign on Indigogo to raise ?5,000 towards the cost of launching new security and training units to help protect those striving the make the world a better place. UK forces continue to be very active in Iraq, but have also increased offensive operations in Syria. Following the widespread media coverage of our recent report on the hostile use of civilian drones by non-state actors, our findings are beginning to spur political debate. Open Briefing publishes clear objectives and targets to help drive our development and provide concrete evidence by which we can be held to account by funders and others.
We have published our project proposal and budget for 2016-19, setting out our ambitious plans for the next three years.
On 11 January 2016, the Remote Control project published a groundbreaking new report from Open Briefing on the potential hostile use of civilian drones. On 2 December, the UK parliament voted in favour of authorising airstrikes against Islamic State in Syria.
Press release: Civilian drones at risk of being used by terrorist and other hostile groups. A new report from Open Briefing has found that as ever-more advanced drones are available to the civilian market there is an increased risk of drones being used by non-state actors against British targets.
In this groundbreaking report for the Remote Control project, Open Briefing has analysed over 200 commercially-available drones and assessed known drone use by non-state groups, including terrorist organisations, insurgent groups, organised crime groups, corporations and activists. Open Briefing is delighted to announce that Chris Cushing has joined us as our new humanitarian security consultant. Islamic State is the richest terrorist group in the world, with an estimated annual turnover of between $2 billion and $3 billion. The al-Qaeda network is weakening and the embattled Afghan government is making modest strides, but cybersecurity threats are on the rise and Iranian nuclear aspirations remain a major peril. These are among the main themes in the annual US intelligence community’s threat assessment, the unclassified version of which the Director of National Security has released as a statement for the record for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. A generic threat assessment template may involve fields like threat actor group name, description, capability, motivation and threat level.

Unmasking the Bogeyman – Utilising cyber-intellegence and threat profiling to measure threats to your organisation! The number of breaches and issues over the last few years have helped security professionals prove that the bogeyman is indeed real and that there are many real threats to our organisations. However just knowing about these is not enough, we need to be able to measure and quantify these threats in the context of our organisations. To add detail and meaning to this score the items in the below diagram need to be considered to understand the scale of the threat, the motivation (how hard the attacker will try, for how long, and with what resources), and also the actions the threat would take e.g. This data can then be incorporated into a Threat Profile table to provide a consolidated view of the specific threat and it’s score.
Next to the above are more general sources of threat information such as various industry forums. As mentioned, this would be a great starting point for the earlier process around quantifying operational risks.

As Russia shifts its gaze from perceived threats along its southern borders to those along its western ones, together with a fundamental shift to a military doctrine that once more sees NATO as the primary threat, the temptation to use the VDV as a military solution to political problems will likely only grow.
It includes the MoD response to an Open Briefing Freedom of Information request and an overview of UK military actions in the two countries, including ground operations – an often overlooked element of the UK campaign.
Should we therefore be concerned about the possibility of Islamic State or another terrorist group using drones to attack Western cities?
However, the majority of UK airstrikes continue to be opportunist rather than intelligence-led, with targets being both identified and attacked by combat air patrols. On 13 January, Paul Flynn MP wrote to the Department of Energy and Climate Change to ask it to review security at nuclear power stations in light of our report. In addition to expanding the activities of our existing groundbreaking intelligence unit and policy-orientated think tank, we are also announcing the launch of exciting new security and training units – further increasing our ability to keep civil society actors and concerned citizens safe and informed. And they also matter; they can be the difference between the slow wearing down of the hardliners’ outsized control or the further consolidation of power in their hands. The report was widely covered in the news media, including by the Guardian, Daily Mail, Express and BBC, as well as in the technology press, including Wired and Tech Insider.
The RAF has since targeted well heads within the Omar oil field in Syria and undertaken multiple missions around Raqqa. As approximately 200,000 civilian-use drones are being sold worldwide every month, the legislation currently governing the civilian use of drones is struggling to keep up with the speed at which new drones are being developed and put to novel uses.
The report sets out a series of recommendations to mitigate the threat from the hostile use of drones, including specific regulatory, passive and active countermeasures. We have big plans for 2016 that will help us do even more to fulfil our mission to keep those striving to make the world a better place safe and informed.
The groups control over substantial territory allows it to generate considerable amounts of money from organised crime, including the smuggling of oil and antiquities and taxing those smuggling drugs and people, as well the through levying taxes and fines on the populations of the areas it controls.

The assessment can be an organizational or a government initiative based on its very purpose. We rely on the support of volunteers and are funded by charitable grants and public donations. The first major UK combat injuries have been reported, raising questions over the true nature and extent of UK ground operations against Islamic State. We have now reviewed our progress against these objectives and published an evaluation of our activity over the last three years.
However, we can only continue this work with your support; so, please consider making a donation if you are able to do so.
This Open Briefing article for Foreign Affairs explores how the coming Assembly of Experts vote could shape Iran’s future. Open Briefing analysts also gave several interviews to TV and radio news programmes, including RT. A key issue in the build-up to the vote was the risk posed to innocent civilians in the areas of Iraq and Syria targeted by the RAF. He is a former officer in the Canadian Armed Forces and has experience with foreign intelligence agencies. There are a lot of samples and examples that are often available for downloads free of cost.
Our new security and training units are groundbreaking, and we want to launch them with the backing of crowdfunding so that they are a truly public enterprise. The debate was reported on by The Sun, and our report continues to be covered widely by the tech and defence industry press in particular. In short, we surpassed the target in half of our objectives over 2012-15 and we achieved over 50% of the target for all bar one of the remaining five objectives. Claims by the government and Ministry of Defence that there is no evidence of civilian casualties from UK military action against Islamic State do not stand up to scrutiny. He is currently an associate faculty member of the Post-war Reconstruction and Development Unit at the University of York. Printability can be a big factor which can be dealt using flexible formats like Word or Excel. So please help by supporting our crowdfunding campaign and encouraging your friends, family and colleagues to join you.
