Throughout world/military history there's been amazing advances, inventions, and innovations, which are often brought about through necessity; the idea here is to provide a place to discuss 'military technology' both past and present, and to brainstorm, discuss, and/or speculate on future tech and its potential military applications. So, how has 'mil-tech' impacted you or your career? What technology do you find interesting or exciting? How does civilian technology interface with the military and vice versa? What are the impacts to both? Just a few questions to consider, and as always please feel free to share any photos, links, stories or anything else necessary to communicate your point(s). I'm certain that this will be both fascinating and informative so let's get this thing started; thank you for all that you do, and... see you all in the discussion threads!

Tried and true, battle hardened and field tested for almost 300 years. Doesn't need batteries, just a reason to do their job. With just a little fuss, easily adapts to any technology, season, climate or area of operation with proper uniform and food. Falls down and gets right back up without being told to.

Comes in 5 unique and distinct flavors for any outing or occasion!

You can't beat them, so join them!

Two examples of past technology that comes to mind are now used on a daily basis. Microwave and GPS. Although both are 'relatively' new, most of us would be (literally) LOST without them!

MSG Huffman, great point, it's truly amazing how fast these relatively new technologies have become an instrumental part of our daily lives. Again, excellent observation... thanks for sharing!
