Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work has started to share pieces of his plan to help the U.S. military maintain its strategic edge through technological offset, Defense News reported Saturday.

Marcus Weisgerber writes that Work intends for his vision to help guidelines for industry to invest in future defense technologies.

Frank Kendall, defense undersecretary for acquisition, technology and logistics, has urged industry partners to increase efforts to bankroll research and development projects, according to the report.

Work told an aerospace industry meeting in Virginia that he wanted the Defense Department to understand the technologies that potential enemies hold, the report says.

William Lynn, CEO of Finmeccanica North America, said future defense capabilities will rely on cyber, unmanned, biology and nano technologies, Defense News reports.
