AI has the potential to act as a technological enabler of the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) across virtually the entire range of platforms and systems, with human-AI teaming eventually becoming the norm. This will have implications for intelligence collection and analysis, logistics, cyberspace operations, command and control, and AI-enabled robotic autonomy. Additionally, at the international level, it will have implications for military, information and economic superiority.¹These changes will require new skills across the NZDF to harness advances in AI, with training doctrine, recruitment and organisation structures having to adjust as a result.²
