Duncan McCrory is a Defence Studies PhD candidate and a member of the Freeman Air and Space Institute at the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom, Shrivenham.
Duncan’s research is focused on the risks to future Air and Space-based Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) operations, posed by the widespread proliferation of advanced Anti-Access/Area-Denial (A2/AD) capabilities. Duncan is examining the challenges posed by emerging A2/AD threats out to the 2040 timescales, and seeks to develop concepts for survivable and effective ISR capabilities.
Duncan has a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering from Trinity College, Dublin (2003) and a Master’s Degree in Science (Engineering for Defence Capability) from Cranfield University (2019). Duncan has over seventeen years of experience in Mission Systems/ISR, including Chief Engineer and Capability Management roles.
Duncan is a Chartered Engineer and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society in 2017 for his contribution to aviation.
