Defence, Leading or Lagging Technological Change – Are we seeing a paradigm shift? by Vice Admiral Duncan Potts CB
Throughout history, warfare has been a major driver of science, technology and wider change. This was nowhere clearer than in the 20th Century through 2 World Wars and The Cold War. But in the 21st Century is that paradigm now inverted? In the digital age, other sectors are disrupting Defence, Security and Resilience, where technologies developed for wider use are having a profound impact. Moreover, Governments are no longer in control of change and are at best second adopters of commercial and societal developments. What are the implications of this and what does it mean for Defence and Security?
