Technology and Know-how Management in and for Intelligence Services

Plenary / Panel
German and English language

William E. Odom

To deal with technology and know-how management in the intelligence services, I will build my lecture around three and a half stories, stories about how dramatic changes in technology were managed and mismanaged. The first is about communications, the second about intelligence collection from space, and the third about computers. The half-story is about cryptography  making of codes  and cryptanalysis  the breaking of codes. The whole story on codes is beyond one lecture, but part of it is essential to my other stories, beginning in World War II and coming right down to the present time. Code making and breaking were the critical, although not the only, causes of the explosion of new technologies that gave us modern communications, computers, many uses of satellites in space.
