Emerging technology breakthroughs in areas such as artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles and nanotechnology are transforming the civilian space and will profoundly impact the nature and likelihood of future conflict. We surveyed over 200 people within the technology community; from government and military employees to solution providers and academics. Download our report to see the survey results.
Addressing the challenges non-traditional partners and SMEs face when providing technologies for defence
As the defence sector aims to become more digitalised, automated and agile it is increasingly turning to non-traditional defence partners and SMEs to bridge the technology gap in defence supply. Ahead of the Disruptive Technology for Defence Transformation conference we sat down with Stuart Young, Head of Cranfield University’s Centre for Defence Acquisition to discuss driving innovation and technology advancements through non-traditional partnerships.

Following on from last year's inaugural conference, Defence IQ has created this Disruptive Technology for Defence Transformation Trends Report 2018. This report outlines the key conclusions drawn from 2017, expert recommendations for future decision making, and what to expect at this year's conference, chaired once again by General Sir Richard Barrons.
The US Army Robotic and Autonomous Systems (RAS) Strategy demonstrates how the integration of new technologies will help ensure victory over increasingly capable enemies, aiming to commit time, talent, and resources now to position the US Army for victory in future conflicts.To overcome future challenges, the Army must seize technological opportunities for RAS development; execution will require leaders to be open to new ideas and encourage bottom-up learning from Soldiers and units in experimentation and warfighting assessment.
This article provides a snapshot of the US Army’s RAS Strategy and how it will come into play in the short, medium and long term in order to assist forces in defeating enemy organisations, controlling terrain and consolidating gains.
The incorporation of Artificial Intelligence into defence strategies has already begun to transform NATO’s ISR capabilities and shape both the requirements and solutions for new approaches in order to meet NATO capability needs.
Ahead of his participation in the Disruptive Technology for Defence Transformation Conference, Defence IQ spoke exclusively to Dr. Thomas H. Killion, Chief Scientist, NATO about the key areas where artificial intelligence and machine learning has already begun to enhance military decision-making and accelerate the acquisition of actionable intelligence, and the potential for these technologies to revolutionise the ISR space in the future.
