Ship Shaping the Future
I’ve spoken a lot in this column over the past couple years in praise of Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter. That’s probably not a big surprise given the technology bent of COTS Journal. Dr. Carter has a background as a theoretical physicist and is a former Harvard professor, just to cite some of his impressive background. The three SecDefs previous to Carter for their part have all expressed how critical technology is to the U.S. military. But his science and technology background quite frankly makes his perspective on the subject a cut above that of his predecessors when it comes to technology.
