The article focuses on the importance of technological improvements in the U.S. military capability. According to the author, the attempt of the Department of Defense (DoD) to increase capabilities in the issue of transformation through technological solutions are being misguided by the vision of a high technology Revolution in Military Affairs (RMA). He suggests that DoD's endeavors to pursue technical improvements have been excessively displayed to the point of being counterproductive.
