Pitch Your Capability Week

By Dmitry Filipoff

This week CIMSEC will be running articles submitted in response to our call for articles on pitching novel capability ideas.

The technological landscape is offering more opportunity than ever before to innovate with disruptive new capabilities. As legacy systems wane in relevance, militaries must rigorously explore the art of the possible when it comes to developing new, game-changing tools. As new systems are developed and fielded, wide-ranging changes in the character of war may follow, with geopolitical advantage accruing to the states best positioned to leverage new forms of warfighting.

Below are the articles and authors being featured in this series, which may be updated with further submissions as Pitch Your Capability week unfolds.

Procuring Modular Containerships for Flexible and Affordable Capability,” by Tyler Totten
When the Balloon Goes Up: Naval Mesh Networking with Stratospheric Balloons,” by Mark Howard
The NightTrain: Unmanned Expeditionary Logistics for Sustaining Pacific Operations,” by CDR Todd Greene
