  • Technologies – new, emerging

      and future

  • Innovation Gaps

  • Battlefield Effectiveness

  • Military Agility

In order to operate along a wide spectrum of conflict, the military continually needs to innovate and adapt, but, in reality, what does this mean?  With the expectation that technology will help us fight better, should we concentrate solely on high-end innovation to apply force?  The nature of war is changing and, with this in mind, should our next generation of military innovators focus instead on developing human capital?  Or should we innovate and adapt only once we know the objective?


We encourage research that considers all sides of this argument, the nature of future conflict, gaps in agility, obstacles to progress, educating and training personnel, the resources needed to accomplish goals and the confusion that is often between activity and progress.


In particular, we are interested in: how innovation requirements change between times of war and times of peace; the difficulty in predicting emerging enemy capabilities and the appropriate future proofing response; and personal experiences of strategic and tactical situations.


Understanding and predicting how militaries may improve their effectiveness can provide a useful tool for assessing future military developments.

Important Announcement


The companies that we work with continue to plan their response to the Coronavirus.  We are very grateful that this planning has allowed us to continue with our business during this uniquely challenging time. 


Given that we do not operate from a central office, there has been no disruption to our working environment and we continue to work as usual on a number of exciting new projects for publication in 2020/21.  

The Ingram Content Group, both our printer and distributor, are fortunate to be able to ship out of a number of large facilities around the world and where one has to shut down, they will transfer orders to another.  Their market leading service has a unique role to play in their ability to support rapid, single copy order fulfilment to reduce book travel and handling.


Finally, many of our books are available in electronic format either via Ingram direct or via Amazon which will allow your education and business to continue uninterrupted.

As the British Prime Minister said recently, 'Tis the season to be jolly but also the season to be jolly careful'.


          Happy Holidays everyone
