Webinar: Could the U.S. Military Lose a War to China or Russia?

This webinar took place June 19, 2020 and sponsored by Siemens.

Christian Brose, a former majority director of the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee and author of the provocative book “The Kill Chain: Defending America in the Future of High-Tech Warfare,” joins Aviation Week editors to discuss America’s failure to pursue advanced technologies needed to maintain its military edge.
