The Take | Bryan Clark on the Future of War and Preparing for Gray-Zone Operations

Bryan Clark

In the first episode of Hudson’s new video series The Take, Senior Fellow Bryan Clark gives viewers a primer on gray-zone warfare—provocative demonstrations of force that fall short of the types of high-intensity confrontation that would trigger military escalation.

While the U.S. military is over-prepared for high intensity conflict situations, we are underprepared for the gray-zone strategies that adversaries like Russia, China and North Korea increasingly favor. To address this strategic disadvantage, the U.S. must move beyond its World War II planning model and embrace decision-centric warfare.

In Implementing Decision-Centric Warfare: Elevating Command and Control to Gain an Optionality Advantage, authors Bryan Clark, Dan Patt, and Tim Walton examine how the U.S. military can address the growing challenges posed by gray-zone tactics, artificial intelligence and autonomous systems.
