Abstract
The aim of the Technology Trends, Threats and Opportunities (T3O) study are to provide an assessment of the technological environment in which the Canadian Forces will have to operate in the next twenty to thirty year timeframe, and to identify potential threats due to advances in technology and the opportunities that these advances will offer for enhancing Canadian defence capabilties. The aim of the study is not to produce future plans, but to provide the technology forecasting input to the strategic planning process. The present report addresses the advances in technology that are anticipated during the next 20-30 years. It is essentially a technology forecast that attempts to predict the timing and nature, or degree of change, in technical parameters and attributes that are relevant to the design, production and use of devices, materials, systems and processes in a defence context. The approach used in intuitive forecasting based on the expertise in the defence science community. Technolgoies discussed include: Radar; Electro-Optics/Photonics/Optoelectronics; Undersea Warfare; Electronics; Electronic Warfare; Communications; Command and Control; Air Vehicles/Aeronautics; Marine Vehicles/Hydronautics; Land Combat Engineering; Ordnance; Energetic Materials; Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Defence; Human Factors; Health/Biomedical Sciences.
