Military Innovation and Adaptation
Areas of Interest
Technologies – new, emerging
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.
