As we move further into the 21st Century fighting an enemy in a
new paradigm, technology has become more important in both defense
and national security policy. Before spending billions of dollars
on the "next best thing," it is important to have a strategy in
place that smoothly integrates new technologies into a strong
national security policy. Robot technology is reaching deep into
security strategy - understanding the next wave of robot technology
is important for defense at home and in battlefields overseas. How
can we apply this new technology, and how close are these
technologies to performing?
Join us as we delve into building a solid national security policy
of the future.
