Technology is shaping how wars are fought, borders are protected, crooks are caught and individual rights are defined.
In other words, rapid and profound technological change is one of the most potent factors shaping the modern world. It creates significant opportunities, but drives increasingly complex, ambiguous and destabilizing global threats, and catalysis profound societal, economic and political shifts.
Technology is a strategic force. Nations that are best able to anticipate and exploit technological opportunities may have a decisive edge in future conflicts.
It’s crucial for agencies to stay current in defense technologies for a multitude of reasons, such as:
- Understanding the issues, implications, threats and choices that arise from technological developments.
- Develop the technology policies and strategies needed to respond appropriately and realize strategic ambitions.
- Prioritize investment in those Science and Technology (S&T) capabilities and activities that offer greatest potential impact, both now and for the future.
There’s nothing static about defense technology. Cognitive radar, large scale analytic engines, 5G/6G networks, microchips and semiconductors are all part of the future tapestry of defense technology.
The U.S. Department of Defense continues to explore the area of autonomous technologies which allow for increased troop mobility or replacement of live soldiers. Defense analysists believe autonomous vehicles and robots will play a role in future conflicts, which has the potential to decrease loss of human life in warfare.
Today’s hybrid style of warfare also calls for investments in information technologies. Increased reliance on computer systems has incentivized nations to push for increased efforts at managing large scale networks and having access to large scale data.
Then there’s the realm of cyberspace and the increasing role defense technology plays in it. In 2011, the U.S. Defense Department declared cyberspace a new domain of warfare. Since then new technologies are being created that will enable the government to better understand and map the cyber territory.
These important endeavors will ultimately give agencies the ability to plan and manage large-scale cyber missions across dynamic network environments.
