From the sixties to the late eighties, the border war became a household term in South Africa. Hundreds of thousands of young white men were called up for military service, and many served in some or other capacity in Namibia - then South West Africa - often in the so-called operational area, often as combat troops.
Attitudes and perceptions of South African Military Academy students towards information and communication technology and computersAuthor Ariane NeethlingSource: Scientia Militaria : South African Journal of Military Studies 34, pp 49 –66 (2006)More Less
The proliferation of computer technology in both our personal and professional lives, and particularly during the last decade, has created an environment in which there are varying perceptions of, and ideas about, the value of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and computers. In order to benefit from this, especially in a defence environment, a realistic perception about the worth of computers needs to be established. This paper presents the findings of a survey that was conducted to determine attitudes towards ICT / computers among students of the SA Military Academy. Two hypotheses were tested: (1) There are significant differences in attitude towards computers between students of different Arms of the Service; gender; academic year groups; ranks; those having previous experience with computers; and those owning a personal computer (PC); (2) There are significant differences in perception towards the value of ICT / computers between students within these groupings. In brief, the study concluded that there was a significant difference between experienced and less experienced students in the perceived value of ICT / computers in the work place and their personal lives.

It has become commonplace among analysts of all persuasions to insist that in recent years warfare has changed radically. Of course change in warfare is nothing new - like any human activity it is subject to the powerful influences of societal and technological change. But this is different.
