Any leader in any of the military services will declare that support to the warfighter in ongoing operations is the top priority. For service laboratories and system integrators, support to the warfighter centers on developing and deploying new technologies as quickly as possible.
It is no surprise that these technologies are changing the way war is fought. Most changes in warfare have been technology-driven. But in this post-Cold-War environment, technology change is a two-way street. Technology both is changing warfighting and is being changed by it.
