DEFTECH-SCAN September 2020

This DEFTECH SCAN reports on and assesses key developments in military technology and capability development taking place from late July through mid-September. It includes developments from the United States—which saw an especially active reporting period—Russia, China, the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, and India among other countries involved in the discussion around the ethics and safety of defence and security applications of artificial intelligence.

The reporting period included at least three especially significant defence technology breakthroughs in the United States: 1) the shock announcement of the flying in the real world of a digitally designed sixth generation fighter jet; 2) the victory of an artificial intelligence algorithm over a human pilot in a virtual dogfight; and 3) the interception of a manoeuvrable cruise missile by a hypervelocity projective fired from a howitzer.
