DOD needs new tech for Asia, Panetta says

As the Defense Department's mission evolves, so do its technology needs, said Defense Secretary Leon Panetta aboard a plane heading for Singapore.

DOD needs to “invest in new technologies that will help us build a stronger power projection,” Panetta said, quoted in an article in Defense News.

Panetta said the American military is undergoing a “rebalancing” that will see a significant increase in America's presence in the Asia-Pacific region over the next 10 years, according to the article.
