ACC Innovation Summit

The notes from the non-classified session are on line. Fun and at times disturbing reading. Let's start with the disturbing part first.

Air University: Future Operating Environment

Rail guns, directed energy, EMP, yada yada yada. We've seen that before. What is a bit disturbing is the inputs for "targeting" uses "global private data." Uh, private data should be private. And this is under today's technology. In the future, they want to use the "internet of things" for targeting. The definition of the internet of things is very fluid, so here is the wiki:
Definition of internet of thngs
Now RFID is part of the internet of things, so your EZPASS might get you droned.

Stealth emphasis is reduced in favor of swarms. This has been talked about for a long time.

Air Force Global Horizons
Warning to the anti-science crowd: this document believes in global warming. Other projections include the reduction of off-shoring. Well, let's hope so. Mentioned in the document is "cold atom navigation." Basically it is a return to inertial navigation since the GPS system can be jammed.

NASA "Revolutions in Warfare 2030"
We have " “affordable” anti-matter", EMP, "Smart Dust/Explosive", "Bio Dispensers (Anti-People, Things, Plants)" and the Slingatron. Are we having fun yet?

Navy 2025
Much less science fiction in this document. Unmanned ISR, jamming and directed energy. etc.
