2.      It would consider both generalist and specialist functionality, such as cyber, intelligence, logistics and technological proficiency; and their relation to both the threats and opportunities posed emerging and disruptive technologies.

3.      It would build on the Future Reserves strategy and Reserve Forces 2030, drawing upon extensive Whole Force S&T work already conducted for CDP.
