Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering

Rebeccah Heinrichs

Senior Fellow, Hudson Institute

The Trump administration’s National Security Strategy (NSS) recognizes a return of great power competition, stating that China and Russia are fielding military capabilities “designed to deny America access in times of crisis and to contest our ability to operate freely in critical commercial zones during peacetime.” Furthermore, the NSS contends that these countries “are contesting our geopolitical advantages and trying to change the international order in their favor.”

On April 13, Hudson Institute hosted a discussion with Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering Michael Griffin to address specific ways in which the U.S. can respond to adversarial nations that exploit U.S. technological advances to threaten U.S. interests and national security. The discussion was moderated by Hudson Senior Fellow Rebeccah Heinrichs.
