Abstract:

The objective of the armasuisse Science and Technology Foresight program is to anticipate and get the necessary understanding of the emerging technologies. Even if the purpose is to anticipate which technology can have an impact on security, it is a continuous process, increasingly considering dual-use technologies as well as their combinations. As technologies can be considered independently of the domain of application, we believe that creating a collaborative platform providing some structured information about technologies could be of common general interest at governmental and industrial level, both national and international. Technologyhorizon.org has the vision to globally collect and centralized these common parameters strategists need to understand about technologies (definition, strength, weaknesses, readiness, etc) independently of which industry they work for.
