Future warfare systems are introduced and analyzed. A new concept of Local Autonomous Warfare (LAW) is presented. Based on the concept, the configuration of a LCADW system is proposed. Then the basic functions that should be embedded in a LCAW system are defined, and the key technologies needed to be further studied for a LCAW system are listed. Finally, the potential applications of LCAW systems are investigated, and a ACP based Parallel Defense System is proposed to extend the scope of LCADW.
