BLUFA team studied 10,000 years of global history and found three key drivers of military technology: population size, non-military advancements, and geographic connectivity.
- Mathematical modelling techniques from ecology were applied to analyze historic events.
- Information exchange between rival states drove technology development.
- The adoption of advantageous military technologies placed pressure on other states to follow suit.
- Advancements in military technology significantly impacted the dynamics of power among states.
