Defense Department officials yesterday described current and future game-changing warfare capabilities that will ensure national security for the United States, allies, and partners.

The venue for the discussion was testimony at a Senate Armed Services Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities hearing.

The Defense Innovation Unit successfully prototyped synthetic aperture radar satellites, which can see through clouds and at night. These satellites provided the world with imagery of Russian forces in and around Ukraine, enabling the Department to predict the invasion and prove undeniably what was happening without revealing classified sources, said Michael Brown, DIU Director.
