This report discusses selected military technology issues that were important during Operation Iraqi Freedom in Iraq 2003. The main elements pointing toward the future, were the use of UAVs, cruise missiles, precision munitions, continuous ground surveillance, tracking (of goods, casualties, forces, ...), and network centric operations with special forces, ground forces, airborne sensors, and weapon platforms closely interlinked. Key satellite communications and navigation services were not interrupted to any significant degree. The increased military capabilities of USA and UK due to recent introduction of new systems are underlined. Recent predictions made in Norway about important development trends in the military technology field seem to be justified. The report is based on open sources.
