Highlights – Urbanity

If something should happen in Switzerland, given the structure of the country, it will take place and have major consequences for urban and peri-urban areas. It is therefore of importance to anticipate how these areas might look like and understand which technologies might drive the changes in order to ensure the non-obsolescence of our systems as well as the military doctrine.

Based on this belief, we have considered the main military capabilities as chapters, dividing each of them into sub-chapters with the aim of answering the following questions:

  1. What could be the future of that capability from a science-fiction perspective?
  2. How does the innovation landscape look with respect to that argument?
  3. What is happening in Switzerland in this regard?
  4. How is this matter relevant for the armed forces?

We wish you good inspiring reading!
