  1. According to the Defense Department’s current leaders, the Third Offset Strategy is an effort to focus DoD’s innovation efforts on preserving and revitalizing its conventional deterrence capability by adapting to the countermeasures to key U.S. capabilities that near-peer competitors have built up in recent years and are continuing to develop. A key issue in defining the Third Offset Strategy is the question of what adversary capability it offsets. In the first two offset strategies, the United States was offsetting the conventional numerical superiority of the Warsaw Pact. As Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter outlined in his keynote remarks, the current erosion of the U.S. technological advantage derives not from adversaries’ numerical superiority or superior volumes of investment, but from the increasing global and commercial nature of the innovation environment and the increasing applicability of commercial technologies to military operations. Adversaries have been able to utilize these widely available technologies to enable their own innovative operational concepts that challenge U.S. and allied operational capabilities. Further, as General Paul Selva, Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, stated in the opening plenary session, the Third Offset Strategy is designed not as final point solution to these issues, but more as a framing device. In short, as Vice Chairman Selva noted, the Third Offset Strategy is not so much an answer as a question: What is the suite of analytical and ultimately operational tools that should be used to address current and future operational problems? Answering this question can enable a range of solutions, many of which will only be envisioned in the future.
