The world has been undergoing transformational changes, and the security environment is being affected by recent conflicts like the Ukraine Invasion and the Gaza conflict. China’s expansionist behaviour continues to affect the Indo-Pacific region and its countries. However, peace and security in the Indo-Pacific region are now tenuous due to the shifting character of conflicts and the constantly shifting geopolitical environment.

The last two decades have witnessed a quantum leap in technology, and modern multi-domain warfare has been most affected by this change. Modern warfare’s evolving nature is fast becoming dependent on the use of artificial intelligence, machine learning, quantum technology and its applications, and the cyber domain. As these technologies advance and grow more sophisticated, they will have a long-lasting effect on conflicts in the future.

In light of this, the Asian Defence Review’s theme for this year is Emerging Technologies and Changing Dimensions of Threats for India. In order to provide a picture of the defence, it includes the viewpoints of various writers who are experts in their fields.
