Dear readers,

Welcome to the website of the Austrian Military Journal (Österreichische Militärische Zeitschrift, ÖMZ). The ÖMZ was founded in 1808 and is therefore the oldest journal dealing with questions pertaining to all military sciences. It offers analyses of security, defence and armament policy, the theory of war including polemology, strategy, and operational-level command. The journal’s printed version is published in German and is read in the entire German-speaking world. Our web-presence is designed to increase the journal’s readership, to overcome the language barrier, and to offer a platform for international military-scientific exchange in the field of topics relevant both to Europe and questions of security. The editors would be pleased to win your support, given your interest in European, security-related topics, as readers, critical commentators or, better still, as authors. This would contribute to a discourse which is international, oriented towards the future, and which deals with security policy as well as the military sciences.

Emerging technologies in the field of logistics

Andreas Alexa

This article focuses on the description of emerging technologies in the field of logistics and the implications to the support und the sustainment of military operations in the year 2040.

Although the future is not predictable and it is a view into the glass ball, there will be significant changes in the next 20 years. Some of the new technologies, which are currently only thought by science-fiction authors and forward thinking enterprises, will not be carried out, others however will be implemented in the civil world and therefore will have an impact in the conducting of military operations.
