ABSTRACT
This article discusses the implications of the military components and the contributions that the technological element makes to national power for the U.S.-Soviet Union relationship. It asserts that the said relationship will turn on issues going far beyond arms control alone, issues involving subjective considerations and beliefs about the origins and nature of Soviet strategic objectives and the impact of technology on the military balance. It examines some factors that determine where, how and how well the technology is being exploited to enhance military capabilities.
