The Impact of Disruptive Technologies in Northeast Asia
Center on Contemporary Conflict
MetadataShow full item record
The project will investigate the development of disruptive technologies in Northeast Asia to assess the impact of these technologies on the United States’ management of regional alliances and military strategy. The United States and China are both pursuing development of a full range of disruptive technologies, including hypersonic vehicles, cyber warfare capabilities, counterspace capabilities, and unmanned systems with state-of-the-art robotics technology. Simultaneously, emerging perceptions that the United States is losing its capacity as a security guarantor in the region have caused uncertainties in Japan and South Korea regarding the reliability of U.S. defense commitments. The increased risk of conflict makes it urgent that political and military leaders in these nations consider how disruptive technologies may affect the stability of Northeast Asia’s security environment.
