La acest panel au participat reprezentanți ai serviciilor române de informații civile și militare, precum și din mediul politic, academic și non-guvernamental, I2DS2 fiind reprezentat de vice-președintele Asociației, Glmr (r) Cristian Eremia. Dezbaterile au fost un bun prilej pentru clarificarea unor concepte și relevarea unor caracteristici concrete ale operațiilor de intelligence ale unor state ostile NATO și UE și modul posibil de afectare a securității transatlantice sub impactul numeroaselor provocări de securitate cu care ne confruntăm în prezent.

Reprezentantul I2DS2 a prezentat rezultate ale unor investigații ale Asociației privind  unele tendințe în operațiile serviciilor de intelligence în plan regional sau global. O primă tendință la care s-au aliniat mai multe servicii de informații din statele Regiunii Extinse a Mării Negre (REMN) este aceea de a crește eforturile de asimilare a tehnologiilor avansate, emergente disruptive/perturbatoare, respectiv pentru inovarea și implementarea  de soluții integrate de intelligence pentru operațiile actuale și de viitor. Toate acestea reprezintă reale provocări pentru serviciile de informații și securitate de pretutindeni. În REMN sunt vizibile acțiunile Rusiei și Turciei în aceste direcții. Au fost abordate cu prioritate tehnologiile avansate sau critice de culegere și procesare a informațiilor externe în domeniile SIGINT, COMINT, IMINT, GEOINT și desigur OSINT. 

O altă tendință certă este aceea de folosire a tehnologiilor fără pilot, în special a sistemelor aeriene sau navale fără pilot, de către unele state din REMN pentru misiuni de ISR și ISTAR. Se remarcă aici nu numai GRU și FSB din Rusia - care folosesc la scară largă astfel de drone, dar și performanțele convingătoare atinse de Turcia. Au fost constant asimilate tehnologiile care să asigure superioritate și competitivitate în Spațiul Cibernetic. A fost detaliat cazul serviciilor ruse de informații, care devin din ce în ce mai agresive, inclusiv în operațiile de intelligence clasic.

A fost argumentată concluzia că, în războaiele din viitor, neregulate, hibride, totale sau de nouă generație, transformarea digitală, analiza predictivă și asistarea proceselor decizionale, învățarea automată și inteligența artificială vor schimba jocurile (”game changer”). Va conta extrem de mult și viteza de asimilare a noilor tehnologii de către serviciile de informații și celelalte structuri de forță ale statelor. Schimbările și tendințele de creștere a intensității și agresivității operațiilor serviciilor ruse se realizează în contextul războiului de nouă generație pe care Rusia l-a lansat împotriva Occidentului. Ca atare, a bloca acțiunile serviciilor de informații ale Moscovei ar fi practic primul pas către o descurajare cu succes.

15.12.2020

Niculae Iancu and Ștefan Dănilă, president and vice-president of I2DS2, offered a geopolitical and security perspective on 2021 in the first panel of InnovX - BCR Day. The panel was moderated by Ionuț Stanimir, Marketing & Communication Director at BCR and Co-Founder BCR - InnovX.

Global macro-trends were revealed, such as the overlap between multilateralism and multipolarism, the increasing pressure on Western norms and values that have shaped the international system over the past three decades, the increasing complexity of security threats and challenges and the mutation of the centre of gravity of disruptive research—dual applications from the military to the civilian area.

A special note went to cybersecurity and the ethical and moral challenges of investing in artificial intelligence technologies, augmented reality, or autonomous machines.

Between January and March, I2DS2 participated in the extensive consultation process organized by the Ministry of National Defense in the context of the elaboration of the Strategic Defense Analysis, a fundamental document of public defense policy.

In accordance with the topics under debate, I2DS2 contributed three analysis reports whose conclusions were presented by the president of the Association, Niculae Iancu.

The security environment forecast from the perspective of 2040 provides a representation and interpretation of the nature and distribution of threats to Romania's national security that should be managed in terms of national defense by 2040.

The influence of emerging and disruptive technologies on the organization and use of the armed forces proposes definitions for the notions that are constantly found in debates on the impact of new technologies on defense and provides estimates and predictions on the impact of emerging and disruptive technologies on the organization and use of the armed forces.

Alternative scenarios in strategic defense planning offer a set of alternative planning scenarios, those very unlikely events, difficult to predict, but with significant impact, for which, as a rule, the causes are established and described post factum.

I2DS2 will continue to be actively involved in supporting the implementation of the Strategic Defense Analysis and subsequent processes.

Open Debate on European Defence

12.12.2019

I2DS2 organized on December 12, 2019, an open debate on " European Defense. Abstract concept or pragmatic objective for Romania's national security? ”( Details here ... ) The debate was attended by former high-level decision-makers and specialists in the fields of security and defence, along with representatives of the business environment, the academic and research community. The introduction of the topic and the moderation of the discussions were provided by Niculae Iancu, president of I2DS2. Cristian Eremia and George Tibil, members of I2DS2, offered a perspective on the evolution, stage and development perspectives of European security and defence. Topics were detailed such as CFSP and EEAS; CSDP - vision, history, evolution; European defence initiatives - PESCO and EDF, together with the CDP and CARD mechanisms; military mobility and EU battlegroups. Alternative scenarios of European defence in the current international security context were explored together with the audience. The dominant question was: "What would be the smart decisions that our country could take in the seemingly dichotomous context provided by Brussels' determination to accelerate the integration of European defence, or to accentuate differences of vision about the future of transatlantic security?"

Participants argued extremely diverse opinions, with notes of euro-scepticism, "euro-realism" or moderate optimism.

A substantive conclusion could be that "the EU (Europe) is not ready to defend itself, NATO continues to be the strongest guarantee that Europe can meet current and future security challenges, but participate in the development of the EU's common defence it is a priority that needs to be addressed wisely ”.
