Artificial intelligence, 5G and other emerging and disruptive technologies are enabling adversaries to target gaps in national security capabilities in the United Kingdom and its allies. To address these threats, today’s armed forces need enhanced awareness of what is happening in every domain – land, sea, air, cyber and space – so they can make the right decisions quickly and accurately.
Jim Taiclet, CEO of Lockheed Martin, took the helm of the company one year ago and has put forward a vision to accelerate the delivery of new technological capabilities that will enhance network-centric defence.
This conversation explores what these new capabilities mean for supply chains, industrial participation and government procurement in enabling nations to address the growing threats posed by the rise of Russia and China while strengthening multi-domain integration around the world.
How does the defence industry change to adapt to a digitally connected world?
How can connected systems achieve strategic deterrence through networked effects?
What role can industrial partnerships in defence play in addressing the new capability requirements?
How can national security be bolstered at the grassroots level to pull through future talent?
As with all member events, questions from the audience drive the conversation.
