Offensive use of chemical technologies by US special operations forces in the global war on terrorism : the nonlethal option by George N. T Whitbred( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Counterterrorist operations in the twenty-first century will continue to rely on the combination of highly trained, exceptionally skilled special operations forces and the use of unconventional methods of warfare. Today, counterterrorist operators face a modern terrorist who neither follows constructs of conventional warfare nor is bound by accepted conventions, protocols, or rules of engagement. Anyone, anywhere, anytime is a target. Countering such actions will require the integration of conventional and unconventional approaches. The application of nonlethal chemical technologies offers a viable approach to today₂s counterterrorist operations. In both the antipersonnel and antimaterial applications, advances in technology offer new dimensions in the methods of unconventional warfare. Commander Whitbred examines the applicability of nonlethal chemical technologies as they relate to unconventional global counterterrorist operations, as well as their strategic impacts in relation to the Chemical Weapons Convention₂s restriction of the use of chemical warfare. Although nonlethal chemical technologies are designed to be employed at the tactical level, the results of their effects can become strategic in nature. He recommends that the development of these technologies will extend the range of options in the overall effectiveness of counterterrorist operations

Air Force intelligence role in combating weapons of mass destruction by Cristina M Stone( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Air Force intelligence professionals play key roles in combating weapons of mass destruction (WMD) at combatant commands and components and national intelligence agencies. The Air Force, however, does not adequately prepare its intelligence analysts, targeteers, ISR operators, and unit-level and air and space operations center (AOC) personnel with the knowledge and the expertise required to fill these positions. This paper examines the current status of Air Force intelligence WMD expertise and proposes recommendations for improvement, utilizing Air Force intelligence-distinctive capabilities (predictive analysis, targeting, ISR operations, and unit-level and AOC operations) as a framework for discussion. In the areas of predictive analysis, targeting, and unit-level and AOC operations, Air Force intelligence training courses do not provide the requisite WMD expertise. The Air Force must leverage its technical and scientific core and expert organizations across the government to improve training for intelligence personnel requiring WMD expertise. In the area of ISR operations, the Air Force requires enhanced collection capabilities and better marketing of existing capabilities across the intelligence community. This paper also recommends changes to Air Force intelligence training, technical WMD expertise, and marketing and collection capabilities to improve the nation's ability to combat WMD

Integration of weaponized unmanned aircraft into the air-to-ground system by David B Hume( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unmanned aircraft (UA) have changed the nature of warfare. Their persistence, economy, and utility make them indispensable on the battlefield, but the lines between the intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) and ground attack missions of the UA are now blurred. Within the Air Force, the MQ-1 Predator does not fit seamlessly into the armed reconnaissance role. The ways ISR and ground attack assets are doctrinally resourced, tasked, and flown in support of requirements conflict with each other. The command and control (C2) structure of the theater air control system/Army air-ground system (TACS/AAGS) is not optimized to support the integration of UA operations required in tomorrow's battlespace. The Army is fielding the weaponized Warrior UA system, which crosses service lines into what is traditionally and clearly an Air Force mission. This study examines the issues of integrating weaponized UAs into the future battlespace from the standpoint of doctrine, operational concepts, and roles and missions. To address the disconnects in UA missions and systems, the Air Force must treat weaponized UAs like close air support and merge the Predator and Warrior requirements. Merging the programs will save money, and using the centralized control/decentralized execution tenant of airpower vice organic ownership can decrease the number of UAs required to support the mission effectively. This merger will require both services to establish firm acquisition numbers based on joint requirements. The services must establish a joint acquisition strategy for interoperability, airframe and spare part commonality, and cost savings. This study also recommends establishing joint employment standards and improving C2. Both services must evaluate how they command and control weaponized UAs. The TACS/AAGS system must be modernized along the lines of a joint air-ground C2 cell to allow for near-real-time C2 and dynamic retasking of UAs to maximize employment
