Book review by Jamie. We know that emerging innovations within cutting-edge science and technology (S T) areas carry the potential to revolutionize governmental structures, economies, and life as we know. Over the last ten years, the use of drones unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or unmanned aircraft2 for military and counterterrorism purposes has seen explosive growth. What keeps me awake at night is, are we going to miss the next big technological advance? In todays world, recognition of the potential applications of a technology and a sense of purpose in exploiting it are far more important than simply having access. Conflict in cyberspace refers to actions taken by parties to a conflict to gain advantage over their adversaries in cyberspace by using various technological tools and people based techniques. This is still true in the modern era where advances in robotics and targeting systems have lead to smarter weapons with deadlier payloads. The heat melts the wax of his artificial wings, they crumble, and Icarus plunges into the sea and perishes. Fighter and bomber pilots can remove the defenses of an opposing army utilizing precision munitions without needing direct ground assault. The potential humanitarian impact of some cyber operations on the civilian population is enormous. This section will help bring to light the technological advancements made during eras of heightened global conflict such as the time frame spanning the two World Wars (1900-1950 as well as modern warfare crises (1960-Present).
The high rate of fire from a craft like the AC-130 leads to a higher rate of military casualties. Critically and frequently lacking in comparative social science and humanities historically-based studies of emerging technologies is robust technical security studies, including consideration of the role of tacit knowledge and skills that are not readily quantifiable as part of distinguishing the rhetoric of new technologies from. Currently variables and metrics are neither well-characterized nor well-quantified, particularly for specific-defense related concepts. In the global information age, the most technologically advanced military power no longer guarantees national security. Of critical importance in considering the national and international security implications of technology is that anticipated scenarios should be plausible within constraints of physical viability as well as likely within institutional capacities and tacit capabilities. Confronted with media hype over cyber warfare, China has consistently maintained a cool-headed perspective. Documenting violations of international humanitarian law from space: a critical review of geospatial analysis of satellite imagery during armed conflicts in Gaza (2009 Georgia (2008) and Sri Lanka (2009). When ground troops move into the combat zone, they confront a significantly-depleted fighting force. And regional interests needs to be examined. This article seeks to address some of the questions that arise when applying international humanitarian law a body of law that was drafted with traditional kinetic warfare in mind to cyber technology. And perhaps an enemy will have that. Globalization and the information revolution, including the Internet and other communication leaps have led to much greater visibility into the availability and potential for science and technology.
