The world order that has existed since the end of the Cold War and the security environment that was painstakingly built up from it are a thing of the past. War in Europe is once again a reality, accompanied by a steady increase in regional conflicts and asymmetric threats. The technological framework is chan- ging continuously and rapidly. Digitalization, automation and the autonomization of systems have a particular influence here.
Even in the 21st century, military aggression can occur and does so quickly and largely without warning. As a most likely course of action, an aggressor will first attempt to create strategic facts by quickly capturing space. In this context, a high level of readiness and deployability of the armed forces is decisive for a credible deterrence and defense capability in the alliance.
