Avoiding Technology Surprise for Tomorrow’s Warfighter: A Symposium Report Appendix E Questions Presented to Panels The following questions, provided by the DIA/DWO, were posed to two parallel panel sessions in the symposium to motivate discussion by panel participants. Technology Surprise Problems S&TI (Scientific and Technical Intelligence) Solutions WHO Whom do you see as future creators of technology surprise? Can you name your top three in order of concern? Whom do you go to for information on technology developments that may lead to surprise? Whom do you formally task for S&TI? Do you trust them to provide technically correct, balanced assessments? Why or why not? Responses may be nations, regions, transnational entities, institutions, individuals, etc. WHAT What are your top five technology surprise concerns? At the strategic level? At the operational level? At the tactical level? What specific type of S&TI is most useful for your Command? Long-term forecasts? Technology transfer risk assessments? Current military system capabilities? What do you consider to be critical U.S. technologies that must be protected (e.g., night-vision technology)? Where do your program managers go with questions or ideas about protecting our critical technologies? What positive action/changes have you been able to take in response to S&TI information you have received? What failures have occurred due to a lack of S&TI information?

Avoiding Technology Surprise for Tomorrow’s Warfighter: A Symposium Report Technology Surprise Problems S&TI (Scientific and Technical Intelligence) Solutions WHEN When do you think technology surprise is most likely to occur? What percentage of your Command’s time is spent planning beyond the current conflict? When would you like S&TI reporting to be delivered to you? In response to requests for information? Via IC initiative products? Through tailored reporting based on your unique customer profile? WHERE Where do you think technology surprise is most likely to occur (e.g., within civil systems, military systems, on the battlefield, in space)? Where are the greatest vulnerabilities to U.S. critical technologies? Where should the S&TI community be focusing its effort? Where should the responsibility for S&TI reside (e.g., at DOD, Services, Commands)? HOW How do you identify your S&TI needs? How effective/useful are technology targeting risk assessments (TTRA) to program managers (are they meeting your needs)? How proactive is your Command in seeking out S&TI? How do you receive S&TI (e.g., in person, in hard copy, electronically)? How would you like to receive S&TI?
