EXPERT ANALYSIS: Deep-tech projects have gradually gained stature as the foundation of future national security and economic success. However, the field faces severe challenges. Deep technology projects often require long R&D cycles and large capital investments before being put into use. They are characterized by a high degree of uncertainty and technical risk. However, when successful, they often generate widespread market acceptance and dual-use applications.
For national security, much attention has been paid to AI-powered weapons and intelligence-surveillance-reconnaissance (ISR) systems. These include a natural growth area for deep-tech innovations and include tactical platforms for air, naval, subsurface and space weapons and technologies.
