Fundamental Science, Research and Development, and Experimentation of Emerging Technologies:  ISHPI understands that emerging technologies matter to the military because new technologies can present a threat or opportunity and, yet they are veiled in uncertainty.  Our support to emerging this field address the fact that though the military understands the potential of new technologies but – like its counterparts in civilian business strategy – the uncertainty that characterizes emerging technologies mean that they cannot know which emerging technologies mature to have profound impacts, how long that maturation will take nor the technological trajectory. Our support to emerging technologies breaks the mold of most emerging technology approaches that represent incremental improvements to what went before and focuses on enhancing the competencies of the military along dimensions that they have traditionally valued.  In contrast, we focus on the fact that it is new technologies that are radical, competence destroying and create new sources of military advantage along dimensions not traditionally focused on by industry.
