With our technology improving by the minute, our next war could be devastating and could possibly erase the human kind. In the video series Future First, XPrize and Popular Science explains how these technologies affect how war is going to be like with modern technologies such as the internet, networking, web development, and ISR. Some text below is a transcript from Future First: The Future of Warfare.

What does our next war look like?

In the onset of the video, Future First, the question had been raised. Bill Owens in the video said “It would be different, I think, radically different from anything I’ve seen. I believe that Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance or ISR is extremely important.”

So what is ISR? In its macroscopic impression, ISR is a process that connects a number of battlefield capabilities collectively to help a battle power in taking on its receptors and controlling the info they collect.

Further, Owens explained “If you see a battlefield and the enemy doesn’t, you win. ” Therefore, the types of ships, aircraft, or missiles an opponent has in a battle really matter less. You could see how strong a nation sees when they have the ability to see what’s on the other side and the rest couldn’t.

What is cyber attack?

So you must have heard about the cyber attack. Bill Owens explains that we see today as cyber hacking is actually childs’ play and goes on to explain why. The question is what could be done on a national cyber attack. We must be very cautious about how we see potential enemies. We need to be thinking about how we protect our country from that kind of assymetric warfare.
