据usninews网2020年8月7日报道,8月4日,美国会研究服务局(CRS)发布《新兴军事技术:背景和国会面临的问题》报告。

报告提出,2014年,国防部宣布第三次抵销战略,以开发军用新兴技术。为此,国防部设立一系列国防创新机构,包括“国防创新单元”和“国防战争博弈联盟小组”。

2018年,《国防战略》与第三次抵销战略相呼应,提出重点开发先进计算、“大数据”分析、人工智能、自主、机器人、定向能、高超音速和生物技术等新技术。

该报告综合介绍了美、中、俄部分新兴军事技术情况:

     人工智能;

     • 致命性自主武器;

     • 高超音速武器;

     • 动能武器;

     • 生物技术;

     •量子技术。

报告还讨论了监管这些技术的国际组织相关倡议,重点研究用于作战的新兴军事技术潜在影响,涉及新兴技术的资金水平和稳定性、新兴技术开发管理体系,招聘和留住技术工人的挑战,快速发展两用技术的采办程序,保护新兴技术免遭盗窃和侵权,新兴技术的法制和监管。

Report to Congress on Emerging Military Technologies

August 7, 2020 9:18 AM

The following is the Aug. 4, 2020, Congressional Research Service report, Emerging Military Technologies: Background and Issues for Congress.

From the report

Members of Congress and Pentagon officials are increasingly focused on developing emerging military technologies to enhance U.S. national security and keep pace with U.S. competitors. The U.S. military has long relied upon technological superiority to ensure its dominance in conflict and to underwrite U.S. national security. In recent years, however, technology has both rapidly evolved and rapidly proliferated—largely as a result of advances in the commercial sector. As former Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel observed, this development has threatened to erode the United States’ traditional sources of military advantage. The Department of Defense (DOD) has undertaken a number of initiatives to arrest this trend. For example, in 2014, DOD announced the Third Offset Strategy, an effort to exploit emerging technologies for military and security purposes as well as associated strategies, tactics, and concepts of operation. In support of this strategy, DOD established a number of organizations focused on defense innovation, including the Defense Innovation Unit and the Defense Wargaming Alignment Group.

More recently, the 2018 National Defense Strategy echoed the underpinnings of the Third Offset Strategy, noting that U.S. national security will likely be

affected by rapid technological advancements and the changing character of war…. New technologies include advanced computing, “big data” analytics, artificial intelligence, autonomy, robotics, directed energy, hypersonics, and biotechnology—the very technologies that ensure we will be able to fight and win the wars of the future.

The United States is the leader in developing many of these technologies. However, China and Russia—key strategic competitors—are making steady progress in developing advanced military technologies. As these technologies are integrated into foreign and domestic military forces and deployed, they could hold significant implications for the future of international security writ large, and will have to be a significant focus for Congress, both in terms of funding and program oversight.

This report provides an overview of selected emerging military technologies in the United States, China, and Russia:

  • artificial intelligence,
  • lethal autonomous weapons,
  • hypersonic weapons,
  • directed energy weapons,
  • biotechnology, and
  • quantum technology.

It also discusses relevant initiatives within international institutions to monitor or regulate these technologies, considers the potential implications of emerging military technologies for warfighting, and outlines associated issues for Congress. These issues include the level and stability of funding for emerging technologies, the management structure for emerging technologies, the challenges associated with recruiting and retaining technology workers, the acquisitions process for rapidly evolving and dual-use technologies, the protection of emerging technologies from theft and expropriation, and the governance and regulation of emerging technologies. Such issues could hold implications for congressional authorization, appropriation, oversight, and treaty-making.
