This article analyzes the advancement of defense capabilities in the future. In carrying out this analysis, first, a mapping of national defense threats is conducted. Nowadays, there is a change in the way of looking at future defense threats which no longer see conventional wars but the defenses needed tend to adapt to technological developments and globalization which is growing rapidly. Qualitative methods are used as an approach in this study by strengthening the literature review as a reference and collecting research data. The results showed that the national defense threat was formed into military, non-military and hybrid threat groups. To deal with these threats, traditional defense is not enough. A total people's defense and security system that involves the main components, reserve components and supporting components is needed to form a superior system capable of dealing with all kinds of threats. In addition to the defense system, the innovation of war weapons technology is also very much needed which is supported by superior human resource competencies.
