Abstract:

The recently released National Military Strategy NMS characterizes the strategic environment as one in which globalized, diffused technology in the hands of not only nation-states, but also violent extremist organizations, is challenging the competitive advantage we have enjoyed for decades. The NMS calls for investment in future capabilities like space, cyber, integrated and resilient Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance ISR, precision strike, missile defense, autonomous systems and other changes, to retain or increase our fighting edge.
