Future military communication technology

Advanced military powers are looking to modernise their tactical communications infrastructure through software reconfigurability rather than replacing expensive hardware, to enable high-speed, secure, interoperable and real-time voice and data transmission.

The future military communication technology will be characterised by the massive deployment of sensors, Internet of Things (IoT), and artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), while the introduction of the sixth generation (6G) wireless communication network is expected to allow these technologies to operate at a much larger scale and change the landscape of military communications, warfare and cybersecurity.
