Report Release Webinar—Deterrence by Detection: A Key Role for Unmanned Systems in Great Power Competition
On June 4, 2020, CSBA held a webinar discussion on the release of our new report, Deterrence By Detection: A Key Role for Unmanned Aircraft Systems and Great Power Competition, by Thomas G. Mahnken, Travis Sharp, and Grace B. Kim.
You are cordially invited to a CSBA virtual roundtable – sponsored by Expanse, a world leader in enterprise software and internet operations management – examining the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic for the future competitive balance between the United States and China.
Join us on 29 January at 11:30 AM as Acting Secretary of the Navy, the Honorable Thomas B. Modly, shares his thoughts on the future of the U.S. Navy and its surface force.
On January 23, 2020, Secretary of the Army Ryan D. McCarthy and his team participated in a roundtable with CSBA’s Board, Council, leadership and research staff on the current state of the U.S. Army, his priorities for the organization, and how the Army is integrating new technologies and operating concepts into the service. Following introductions and an opening presentation, Secretary McCarthy actively engaged with attendees on questions concerning the application of land power in the 21st century, Army people initiatives, and how he and his uniformed and civilian colleagues are contributing to the joint force.
The 2018 National Defense Strategy mandates increasing the capacity, lethality, and survivability of America's joint force in the threat environments of the 21st century. CSBA’s latest report assesses five critical priorities for the U.S. Air Force’s combat air force (CAF) in support of these objectives. The report recommends accelerated procurement of the F-35A, the B-21 stealth bomber, new unmanned systems, and weapons that would increase the CAF’s survivability and ability to operate over long ranges.
