Emerging technologies will irrevocably transform the battlefield of the future. This book aims to provide an overview of futuristic and emerging technologies in the aerospace domain.
Future conflicts will almost certainly entail multi domain operations with air power being an inalienable part of it. With the development of modern aircraft and weapon systems revolutionary changes have taken place, which would have a significant impact on war waging capabilities in the aerospace domain. Artificial intelligence, coupled with compatible hardware, networked sensors and modern made weapon systems have increased the lethality and accuracy of aerial attacks. While technology has facilitated networked sensors in enabling real time decision making, they remain susceptible to cross domain cyber attacks. The impact of technology would require innovative operational concepts to fight future wars. The air warriors of today would need to be educated, trained and equipped to retain the cutting edge in the employment of air power as an important tool of statecraft.
This book makes an effort to look at the existing technologies in the aerospace domain and crystal gaze into the future. The effect of space technologies, electronic warfare, modern weapon systems including hypersonic missiles, employment of manned and unmanned systems in autonomous and Manned Unmanned Teaming mode would define the future of aerial warfare in general and give a sense as to how the IAF should be looking at certain key aspects of air power that would be relevant for us in the future.
