Scholars in Thomas University’s Armed Services Institute (ASI) are working with TRSS analysts and data scientists to develop new ways for the United States and its allies to respond to the kind of non-traditional warfare that often involves economic coercion, cyber-attacks, misinformation, and provocations by both state and non-state actors. Stephen Ferguson, Vice President for Military and Corporate Relations at Thomas University stated, “Understanding and operating in the ‘Gray Zone’ is not new, but is increasingly important in our world today. The Armed Services Institute is pleased to be working with TRSS on this important topic. “
