Field Programs


In FY20, Alan L. Freed Associates is offering a menu of one-day field programs that can be presented at military installations around the United States. The format for each field program is identical to the programs held on Capitol Hill. Please note that each program can be modified to address specific areas of concern to individual agencies/organizations. These programs are also available as online video conferences.

 

Program Description


Where do cyber and artificial intelligence (AI) fit into the near-term national security framework? This is a critical question at a time when legacy systems and missions still command the bulk of budgets and manpower at the expense of innovative technologies, structures, and doctrine.

This special foreign policy seminar will offer attendees the opportunity to discuss these critical issues with a group of nationally recognized speakers in an informal and off-the-record setting.

The following list will offer Air Force attendees a template of the types of issues that will likely be discussed.

 

Seminar Topics


  • How do we exercise deterrence with cyber and strategic information dominance in the post-nuclear age?
  • How do we achieve a balance between legacy force structures and legacy doctrines with the unscripted new warfighting methods?
  • What is the impact of changing power capabilities and aspirations of major powers such as the People’s Republic of China and emerging middle powers such as Iran and Turkey?
  • Will the West retain sufficient aerial and space dominance in the coming decades?
  • How vulnerable are assets to hostile cyber and information dominance?
  • Is our AI Ecosystem—from robotics to unmanned vehicles—sufficiently ahead, or are lagging behind our adversaries’ capabilities?
  • How will advanced kinetic weapons such as hyper-sonics and anti-satellite weapons impact the Air Force mission?
  • The Strategic Implications of Quantum Computing

The above topics may change to address current events and interests of the participants at the time of the seminar.
