 If I had to guess, I would say that the next military revolution will be something like Skynet– coordinated aerial surveillance/missile launch suppression/air superiority by unmanned and unmanually controlled UAVs working as a network. It will be an abandonment of human command and control of the terrestrial skies, an extension with orders of magnitude greater sophistication of the technology that allowed NASA and JPL to send our brains but not our bodies to Mars. The aircraft carrier ended the age of the admirals taking overall fleet command; we are going to see the end of the age of the pilot generals, NORAD and air tasking orders.
