How might the war in Ukraine shape how military planners, politicians, and the commercial sector, think about the future of warfare and assessing military capability?
Russia’s war of aggression and the way Ukraine is defending itself may force Western countries, once again, to rethink modern warfare. One key question in this war relates to the roles and effects of Emerging and Disruptive Technologies (EDTs). The use of technologies such as UAVs, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data Analytics, Robotics, and Autonomous systems seems to foreshadow the rise of new approaches. Commercial space and the impact of non-state entities have altered traditional dynamics.
