International cooperation on questions of military science and technology may present challenges because of classified information and potential commercial value. Operating in an international forum at an unclassified level, this working group seeks to raise awareness about open-source developments of broad interest to our institutional members. Participants may use the open forums for situational awareness about unclassified developments and ongoing research.
