Future Warfare


Cordillera has deep expertise in predictive modeling, capability experimentation and technology analysis for future warfare, with a focus on commodities, companies and technologies relating to future conflict in the land, sea, air, cyber and space domains. We have particularly extensive experience in urban conflict, unconventional warfare and sub-threshold (covert/clandestine) conflict.

Clients include NATO, the United States Defense Advanced Research Agency (DARPA), the UK’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC), special operations organizations across the Western alliance, and several industrial and aerospace manufacturers and research and development (R&D) companies based in Europe, Australasia and North America. Cordillera has successfully led multiple government-sponsored and commercial R&D programs, and is currently engaged in several more.

Our clients choose us because we have a strong track record predicting developments in the future conflict space, because of our deep networks in the R&D and scientific communities, and because of our ability to connect innovative technologies with academic expertise and investment or research funding.
