Next Great Decisions to focus on Defense Technology
Defense Technology is the topic for Great Decisions at the Library at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 15 at Bethany Lutheran Church.
From robotic planes to cyberweapons to 3D printing and human enhancement, new “game-changing” technologies are moving from science fiction to battlefield reality – all during an age of fiscal austerity. But in wrestling with the new, we can actually learn a great deal from the past. Our forebears went through similar challenges with such once fanciful but now normal concepts as airplanes, submarines, and tanks. What are the “killer applications” of the 21st century battlefield, and in turn, what are the issues that the U.S. must navigate in adapting to them?
The moderator is Laurence Kerr, a retired associate professor at the Inter-American Defense College.
The talk is free; refreshments will be provided.
