The character of conflict between nations has fundamentally changed. Governments and militaries now fight on our behalf in the "gray zone," where the boundaries between peace and war are blurred. They must navigate a complex web of ambiguous and deeply interconnected challenges, ranging from political destabilization and disinformation campaigns to cyberattacks, assassinations, proxy operations, election meddling, or perhaps even human-made pandemics. Add to this list the existential threat of climate change (and its geopolitical ramifications) and it is clear that the description of what now constitutes a national security issue has broadened, each crisis straining or degrading the fabric of national resilience. Traditional analysis tools are poorly equipped to predict and respond to these blurred and intertwined threats.
