New methods of solving the challenges of today and tomorrow

Everyone has been talking about innovation now for many years, just as they have been in the defence departments of this world. However, the many faces of innovation have a connecting element in the context of defence technologies. Unlike in the past, civilian technologies and applications are now leading to leaps in development. In many cases, these are only put to a second, military use subsequently. This is associated with reduced evolutionary development cycles geared to the civilian market as well as possible new bidders of solutions which have hitherto not been part of the traditional armament industry. In order to meet the challenges this poses, new alternative methods and approaches to finding solutions are needed.
