This yearʹs "Conflict analysis and conflict trends" essay considers lessons learnt from the ten years of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, including the role of state and non-state adversaries, commonalities and continuities between modern conflicts, and possible capability requirements. This is followed by "Unmanned systems: capabilities develop amid continuing policy questions". In this piece, the development and deployment of land, maritime and aerospace systems are discussed, as well as the problems of contested airspace, and the future for unmanned systems as a result of developments in autonomous technology. Finally, an essay on "Measuring cyber capability" discusses factors by which we might begin to measure statesʹ abilities to operate in the cyber domain, and possible indicators of cyber warfare capability. -- Publisher description."@en ;
