Understanding Intent

This presentation for the AFINT Conference focuses on the human element in warfare. It provides examples of where low tech beats high tech, and argues against an over-reliance on technology. Properly understanding an adversary, in particular their intent, remains a key aspect of the intelligence function.

The slides for this talk are available on request from the editor@avoidingcatastrophe.com. If you are interested in this topic, by all means comment below, or get in touch.
