Warfare today is online, in space—everywhere. And the blistering pace of digital technology is driving it. Keeping pace with commercial tech trends is no small task for the military, but Will Roper is no stranger to innovation in government. Once running the Pentagon’s secret innovation office (where he built sci-fi tech like swarming hive-mind drones), he’s now in charge of all Air Force and Space Force programs. Come hear how he’s helping the military prepare for eCombat: warfare in the digital age of AI and 5G. New partnerships with tech startups, creating a militarized internet of things, digital twins, and even commercial flying cars are just some of the initiatives changing how the military prepares for future conflict.
