In the 20th Century, ‘spin-out’ from the innovation caused by conflict dominated civilian technology.  The aeroplane, rockets, satellites, computers and radar all had their genesis or accelerated development founded in warfare.  In the 21st Century the situation has reversed, with ‘spin-in’ from the civilian sector now the dominant cause of innovation in the Military.

The Armed Forces Committee is delighted that one of the leading UK practitioners of cutting-edge Military Command and Control development has agreed to give a talk on the impact of ‘spin-in’.  After a distinguished career as a front-line Fast Jet Navigator and subsequent appointments as Air Component Commander in the Middle East, head of Military Strategic Effects in the UK MOD and as Director of Strategy for the UK’s Strategic Command – the author of the first Command Strategy, Air Vice-Marshal (retd) Justin Reuter CBE is now the UK representative to the US Global Information Dominance Experiment (GIDE).
