DA4104 Militaries and Technological Change

Technological advances have always influenced developments in military affairs, particularly fighting doctrines and forms of organization. This course surveys the major technological changes that accompanied industrialization: including advances in weapons, transportation, and communications systems; and examines the ways in which professional militaries adapted to these developments. Special attention is given to advances in information systems, as the goal of the course is to derive insights into how militaries might respond, doctrinally and organizationally, to an extended period of information-technology-driven changes in military affairs. Prerequisites: None.
