Ahead of the NATO Summit in Brussels, Admiral Manfred Nielson, Deputy Supreme Allied Commander of Transformation at NATO, joined Hudson to discuss NATO’s efforts to adapt to a new security environment characterized by disruptive technologies and hybrid warfare tactics.
NATO’s Allied Command Transformation (ACT), which Admiral Nielson helps lead, is NATO’s strategic command with the distinct mission to lead the transformation of military structures, forces, capabilities and doctrines. The mission must enable NATO to meet its level of ambition and core missions and to address these new challenges. Particular areas of interest include: cyber defense, missile defense, artificial intelligence, autonomous systems and other disruptive technologies. The discussion will be hosted by Hudson Senior Fellow and former Assistant Secretary General for Emerging Security Challenges, Ambassador Sorin Ducaru.
