Technology is advancing at an unprecedented rate, driven mainly by exponential improvements in enhanced computing power, increased storage capacity, and better connectivity. These advances are, in turn, ushering us in a new ‘digital age’ in which data is the most valuable commodity driving disruption across all industries—aerospace and defense included. Just like any other industry, the defense industry is also accelerating their digital transformation endeavors in response to the global pandemic and changing workforce needs. Technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), big data, blockchain, robotics, and UAVs are leading to a transformation in modern warfare characterized by exponentially enhanced situational awareness and decision-making.
Partially autonomous and intelligent systems have been used in military technology since World War II, and the current advances in machine learning and AI represent a turning point in the use of automation in warfare. AI is enabling autonomous systems to conduct missions, achieve sensor fusion, automate tasks, and make better, quicker decisions than humans.
Besides, robots in the military can perform various combat roles, including rescue tasks, explosive disarmament, fire support, reconnaissance, logistics support, lethal combat duties, and more. These robots can also be seen as an alternative to human soldiers, handling a broader range of combat tasks, from picking off snipers to targeting enemies’ areas with greater efficiency.
At this juncture, there is a variety of defense intelligence service companies that are entering the market to cater to the different needs of enterprises. To help them choose the services that best fits their requirement, Aerospace and Defense Review has compiled lists of defense intelligence service companies. Besides, the magazine also comprises insights from thought leaders in the sector on the industry trends, best practices, recent innovations, and their advice for aspiring CIOs.
