Beyond Offset: Shawn Brimley on DoD Investment

May 12, 2015

Editor’s Note: War on the Rocks has partnered with the Center for a New American Security to produce Beyond Offset, a series that explores the shape of the Defense Department’s third offset strategy. CNAS recently held a working group session to discuss the capabilities and technologies that should be at the center of this strategy. Some of the participants took a few minutes to share their thoughts on the technological investments necessary to maintain the U.S. military’s technical superiority. In the video below, Shawn Brimley, executive vice president and director of studies at CNAS, weighs in.
