The third offset and nuclear weapons

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Third offset technologies are represented as game changing with respect to their implications for U.S.military strategy. In general, third offset technologies as applied to the art of war will emphasize information-driven conventional weapons that are smaller, lighter, and smarter, compared to earlier generations. Howwillweapons and systems based on third offset technologies coexistwith nuclear weapons and their delivery systems, and what are the implications for deterrence and other forms of nuclear persuasion? The discussion here considers various aspects of the nuclear-third offset relationship while acknowledging that it is an open ended question for scientists, military planners and policy makers.
