Episode 25: Tech vs Strategy? The Beginnings of the US Space Force

What is the main driver of change - technology or strategy?

Kim Crider, former US Space Force Chief Technology and Innovation Officer and current Managing Director, AI Innovation for National Security and Defence at Deloitte, talks to us about the early days of the US Space Force and how one integrates tech, science and military strategy.

The discussion then evolves into examining how these strategies filter down into tactical military planning, and the obstacles that can arise when incorporating new space technologies into existing defence structures.
