„Revolution in Military Affairs“ -- Why computer professionals should be concerned

Dietrich 'Rik' Meyer-Ebrecht and Hans-Jörg Kreowski

We will discuss the essential and disconcerting role of information and communication technology (ICT) in the current military doctrines and strategies spoken of as the 'Revolution in Military Affairs' or RMA. We will draw the line from the origin of computers as a genuine dual-use technology towards today's amalgamation of civil and military technologies and its implications for computer professionals.
