The United States finds itself in strategic competition with China and Russia at the same time as its traditional technological superiority faces emergent challenges. The participants addressed how new military technologies might change the strategic dynamic in both Europe and in the Pacific and what these weapons may mean for non-state actors.

  • Ralph Semmel, director of Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory
  • Capt. Katie Hedgecock, U.S. Army and Stanford University
