Foreword by Robert O Work…

It was spring, 2014. I was a man on a mission, and in a hurry. As the new deputy secretary of defense, the number two civilian in the Department of Defense, I was responsible for helping shape the size and capabilities of the US armed forces. I was increasingly uneasy about military advances in Russia and China that threatened our military’s technological superiority. Generally, when designing its military, the Department of Defense counts on a technological edge so that we never have to try to match potential opponents soldier for soldier, tank for tank, ship for ship, or plane for plane. Given the concerning trend lines, I was thinking hard about how we might regain a comfortable level of technological “overmatch.”
