In January, the Pentagon released its National Defense Strategy – laying out a world where great power competition, rather than counterterrorism, will drive the department’s decision-making and force structure.
But what does that mean for military investments and mission priorities? And where do global partners fit within an agenda defined by military superiority?
The Defense News Conference brought together military leadership and defense experts to dig into a defense strategy where the end game far differs from that of years past, articulating what that means for procurement, technology development and international cooperation.
Topics covered were:
• Military system modernization
• Global cooperation, global competition
• The nuclear triad and modern deterrence
• Training in an era of hybrid warfare
• Future military technology and innovation
Here’s a look at the 2017 Defense News Conference – the premier industry event of the year.
