Defense.Info is a website that provides cutting-edge analyses of global strategic challenges and developments as well as of defense platforms and systems.
We are taking an approach different from what we have done and are doing on Second Line of Defense.There were are focused on the warfighter and support to the warfighter both in terms of current capabilities and new capabilities.
On this website, we are focused on the changing global strategic environment, and the intersection between that changing environment and the transformation of military and decision making capabilities in the US, among the allies and the non-liberal powers as well.
We will refresh the website completely in a 7-14 day cycle with each “weekly” posting providing a de facto magazine snapshot of developments of note.
We will focus as well periodically on publishing a set of pieces relating to a core topic such as the A-29 and related issues, going back into history and posing some tough questions concerning why we are doing this competition all over again.
We have two boxes devoted to partners, the first a Partners Corner, where we will republish key pieces from our partners and the second, a Williams Foundation Corner. where we will bring together the reports we have done for the Foundation as well as Williams Foundation publications. This will allow for a one-stop look at what the Foundation has done and is doing to generate a broad look at the fifth generation warfare transition and effort unique among the allies, including the US as well.
We will focus on a key defense system, one at a time, and bring together in one place our work with regard to that particular defense system. In effect, we can provide a concentrated look at that system and provide journalists, analysts and our readers with a comprehensive look at key defense systems or capabilities as seen through our interviews on Second Line of Defense which are scattered throughout that website. We are starting with the CH-53K as this is a key new system coming into the USMC and which is of interest to core allies, such as Germany and Israel, and we can provide support to policy makers in those countries looking at the new system as well.
We will provide weekly interviews and videos highlighting the most recent interviews we have done or gone back to key ones we have done in the recent past which highlight a key aspect of change either in the strategic environment or in the evolution of militaries to that strategic environment.
We will as well have a weekly comment section in which we will focus on a development of note, either of significance or of amusement in the past week or so.
And we will have an op-ed section which will highlight key issues which deserve comment. It is named in honor of our former colleague Danny Lam and the hard-hitting analysis of Lam is being honored here by continuing his tradition on our new website.
We are including special reports as well.
We will provide free reports which highlight key developments which we are doing on our various websites.
