On day two of Canada’s Defence Perspectives 2020-2050: Recapitalization and the Canadian Forces conference, the message was clear: “those who dominate materials, will dominate.”
The content of panel 3, “Advanced Technology, New Domains and the Future of Warfare”, included the understanding that changing demographics will determine the nature of a conflict. That said, we must be adaptable and sustainable in warfare.
The panelists were: LtGen (Ret’d) D. Mike Day and Dr. Andrew Johnston, Program Leader, Security and Disruptive Technologies Program, National Research Council. The moderator was Dr. Alex Wilner, Assistant Professor at Carleton University.
