The purpose of this paper is to explore alternative concepts for structuring mission capability packages (MCP's) around which future U.S. military forces might be configured. From the very outset of this study group's deliberations, we agreed that the most useful contribution we could make would be to attempt to reach beyond what we saw as the current and commendable efforts, largely but not entirely, within the Department of Defense to define concepts for strategy, doctrine, operations, and force structure to deal with a highly uncertain future. In approaching this endeavor, we fully recognized the inherent and actual limits and difficulties in attempting to reach beyond what may prove to be the full extent of our grasp. It is, of course, clear that U.S. military forces are currently the most capable in the world and are likely to remain so for a long time to come. Why then, many will ask, should we examine and even propose major excursions and changes if the country occupies this position of military superiority? For reasons noted in this paper, we believe that excursions are important if only to confirm the validity of current defense approaches. There are several overreaching realties that have led us to this conclusion. First, while everyone recognizes that the Cold War has ended, no one has yet been able to describe or predict what this means for more precisely defining the nature of our future security needs. Despite this absence of both clairvoyance and a galvanizing external danger, the United States has become refreshingly open in examining new strategic options and choices. The variety of conceptual efforts underway in the Pentagon to deal with this uncertainty exemplifies this reality
Rapid dominance, a force for all seasons : technologies and systems for achieving shock and awe : a real revolution in military affairs by Harlan Ullman( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and Arabic and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is nothing new in the notion of using force to affect an adversary{u2019}s will or in relying on {u2018}shock and awe{u2019} to achieve the requisite objectives. What is new, an in the authors{u2019} judgement, what is the fundamental challenge in this endeavour, is transforming the intent to influence will and perception into actual capability for creating shock and awe. This, in turn, means using these requirements of Rapid Dominance as the principal determinants for developing the military doctrine, tactics, capabilities and perception. That is the challenge this Whitehall Paper poses. -- Publisher description

Cognitive Performance of Emotionally Handicapped Students: Predictor of School Placement? by David M Lutkemeier( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The study examined the intellectual performance of 248 school age students 157 of whom were taken from public school settings. Of these, 93 were emotionally handicapped (eh) students and 64 were regular education students. The remaining subjects came from a residential school for eh children and youth (n=15) and from a summer program for academically accelerated students (n=76). Assessment measures were used that may not be as susceptible to extraneous factors as are more commonly used instruments. Measures included the Standard Progressive Matrices (spm), reaction time evaluations, and student record reviews. Results revealed the usefulness of the spm in clearly differentiating groups on the basis of cognitive performance. Reaction time data revealed statistically significant differences between groups. Results of file review (indicating scores on the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised) revealed high correlation with individual spm scores. Findings suggested support for the possibility that intelligence may have some bearing on the diagnostic and eh placement process, despite the lack of compelling evidence to assume that intellectual ability plays an important etiological role. Treatment implications for generalization enhancing approaches are briefly noted. (Cl)
Rapid dominance : a force for all Reasons ; technologies and systems for achieving shock and awe: a real revolution in military affairs by James P Wade( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in Arabic and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study sets the framework for a new strategic doctrine for shaping and using military force in the United States. Based on the concept of Rapid Dominance, this doctrine involves concentrating military power on affecting, influencing and ultimately controlling the will and perception of an adversary rather than on merely destroying or causing attrition to enemy capabilities as envisaged under the currently prevailing doctrine of employing 'decisive force.' Achieving Rapid Dominance requires the application of 'shock and awe, ' that is, frightening, intimidating and threatening an adversary to convince, compel and scare him into accepting the imposed strategic, political or operational aims and objectives. The desired strategic and political goals can thus be achieved through fewer troops, but with significant results. Rapid Dominance has four central characteristics: total knowledge of self, adversary, and environment; rapidity; brilliance in execution; and ability to ensure control of the environment. To achieve this strategy, six paper/technical systems proposed by the authors are requisite. These are intelligence/ operations battle management integrator, "scatterable/disposable" artillery, life-ray, intrusive information warfare, virtual reality control and awareness system. The Rapid Dominance Strategy is perceived by the authors as appropriate in times of peace, crisis and war. It is also viewed as fulfilling the requirements of a major regional war
