Military medicine is an important branch of medicine. Since the establishment of new China, there have been a lot of significant and remarkable achievements in our country. In the 21st century, the military medicine research has been undergone an adaptive change because the international strategic environment has been changing. In this paper, the study on military radiation medicine is introduced and discussed in order to work out a roadmap for military medicine research. The biological effects and mechanisms of the electromagnetic radiation should be clearly elucidated before developing by the strategy of improving the physical ability of military operation, where the neurocognitive effects should be taken into serions consideration. It is further proposed that the "focusing on the brain in general and on cognition in particular, enhancing the immune function and improving the military operation ability" may be considered as the guidelines for studies. Major efforts should be devoted to improving the military operation ability under the electromagnetic radiation,especially the complex electromagnetic radiation. These thinkings can facilitate military medical studies in order to improve national defense power in the new era of modern military logistic reform.
