Podcast: The State of Innovation in A&D

RSS

In this week’s Check 6 podcast, I discuss the state of innovation in the aerospace and defense industry with Graham Warwick, our managing editor for technology, and Senior Pentagon Editor Amy Butler. Our discussion touches on past innovations that are becoming a reality in today’s military forces, why the commercial sector is so much better at harnessing innovation and whether there is an innovation crisis in aerospace.

Read some of Graham's articles on innovation from this week's issue:
