A New Asymmetric Advantage: DARPA's Mosaic Warfare concept

Acknowledging that innovation is required to maintain asymmetric advantage in warfare, NATO nations are looking to adopt more innovative concepts of operation to help direct investment into R&D and S&T. Part of this is a movement away from more expensive, monolithic military systems towards more adaptable, resilient systems of capabilities that can support multiple types of operation across multiple domains.

Ahead of the Airborne ISR & C2 Battle Management conference taking place in March 2018, Defence IQ had an opportunity to interview the Director of the Strategic Technology Office at DARPA, Dr Thomas Burns. In this exclusive transcript of the conversation, Dr Burns discusses DARPA's development of the 'Mosaic Warfare' concept, a new vision for U.S. strategic asymmetric advantage underpinned by the use of dynamic, lower cost, coordinated and autonomous systems.
