We are in a very real race with our adversaries for technological advantage. What we do today will lay the groundwork for decades to come. Proliferation of new technologies demands our science and technology is threat driven and better aligned to our needs in the future. (Ben Wallace MP, Secretary of State for Defence of the United Kingdom, 20 Oct 2020.)
A revolutionary step change in defence capabilities has occurred. Technology, doctrine, connectivity and overall capability have undergone significant development and, defence experts such as the RAND Corporation predict they will continue to do so at an accelerating pace.
Potential adversaries are poised to take full advantage of these gamechanging developments, leveraging the merging of technological advances which NATO have characterised as intelligent, interconnected, distributed and digital, but span such emerging and disruptive technologies such as autonomy, artificial intelligence, data science, advanced materials, space, quantum technology and biotechnology. Harnessing a combination of these capabilities will allow adversaries to have a faster observe, orient, decide, act – or OODA - loop than ourselves, which will culminate in a clear operational advantage for adversary weapon systems.
Non-traditional actors are now key players in the modern battlespace. They too have access to high-end technology; whether through the increasing prevalence of state sponsorship – with the advantage of deniable plausibility for the state sponsor – or through the broad, but loose, affiliation of sympathetic non-state actors. In sum, this means that the speed, reach and logistical underpinning that were once only available to a select few are now far more commonplace. To increase the complex challenges further the emergence of hybrid warfare as de-factonormal has put an increasing demand on the intelligence community, heightening the requirement for timely, accurate and assured signals and electronic intelligence functions.

Regrettably, operational and technological training has failed to keep pace with threat development, leaving many friendly military formations searching for ways to maintain their ever-dwindling advantage or, worse still, having to play technology catch-up. Inzpire’s advanced technology analysis and training (ATAT) team have developed a wide range of original and adaptable operationally focussed courses to equip personnel to meet the demands of tomorrow’s battlespace. They are intended to take the customer from fragile to agile in the most cost effective and minimally disruptive way possible, using a blend of training techniques - meaning they never have to play catch-up.
There is still an ongoing requirement to educate from a basic level. Our courses aim to enhance students' abilities to carry out informed decision making regarding capability development demand through providing them with a deep understanding of modern technology. We do this by giving them access to our experts, who understand the fast-paced and increasingly complex worlds of modern defence doctrine, technology, information advantage and logistical support.
Our courses have been designed to offer highly specialised areas of defence a flexible approach to education from the very beginning, because you cannot understand lethality unless you understand the system. We offer tailored packages to suit all customer needs. As an example, it is essential for personnel who are involved in acquisition to keep abreast of technological developments; our tiered approach to electronic warfare training could be combined with elements of our battlespace spectrum management and/or space technology courses to suit the customer requirements.
Modules from all of Inzpire's courses, such as battlspace spectrum management, can be combined to make a unique training solution.
We also offer bespoke professional development courses for customers who require additional support modules. For example, recent technical graduates may need knowledge both on weapon systems evaluation and radar signal processing - no problem; we can combine modules to make a bespoke course. Need an engineering maths refresher? No problem - we can combine modules from our maths and technology for defence, mathematical modelling, or advanced mathetmatics courses to create the perfect solution.
Our ATAT team have operational experience in air operations and have worked closely alongside international partners in supporting land and maritime. They have designed and conducted operational and developmental aircraft, system and weapons test and evaluation trials; directed combat air training; provided tactical advice across the command chain; analysed and produced mission data to ensure operational advantage; and educated multinational, joint personnel in the understanding and application of advanced technologies in the military and security operational environments. We can do all that for you, too!
