To protect our way of life, the primary purpose of military innovation is to achieve and maintain operational advantage over our adversaries. In the modern age, this practically translates to advanced operational systems and hyperintelligent software to manage these systems in an increasingly autonomous way. Human-machine teams can increase capacity, enhance capability, and facilitate rapid and complex decision making.
