Artificial Intelligence will enable the Navy to dominate the electromagnetic spectrum.
Technology is advancing at a dizzying pace. We are seeing breakthroughs in materials, medicine, energy, computing, and robotics, some of which have the potential to fundamentally change entire components of industry and defense. Identifying disruptive technologies that could have a major impact on the Navy requires a careful look at what the battleground of the future will look like and where the key fights will take place. While technological capabilities in the air, surface, subsurface, and space domains have advanced steadily and will continue to do so, the greatest disruption in the near future likely will occur in the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS). The reason for this is simple: technology is creating new ways to wage war in the EMS.
