The future threat landscape is becoming more agile and dangerous as our adversaries field new capabilities at an increased pace and complexity. New and emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) swarm logic, multifunction digital electronics, cyber, and advanced anti-access area denial systems are all contributing to an increasingly lethal battlespace. If changes aren’t made in the near term, the Department of Defense’s (DOD) traditional document-centric acquisition processes may be unable to efficiently field solutions that can keep pace with these ever-changing future threats.
