Digital Transformation at the Ministry of Defence
Royal Air Force Air Vice Marshal Richard Hill discusses how key technologies are transforming the Ministry of Defence in the latest episode of The Logistics Podcast. This episode, sponsored by Leidos UK, Hill explores how COVID-19 - as well as being a tragic set of circumstances - has been an accelerator of innovation and change.
He discusses 3D Printing; and reflects on a future where a plumber may print plastic pipes, t-pieces and taps when building a hospital at a deployed location, rather than engaging a large supply chain.
He also talks about the challenge to replace armies of middle managers assessing and analysing data—with software. This is the third in a series of interviews from science and technology logistics operator, Leidos UK.
