Genghis Khan : leadership for the AirLand Battle by William S Taylor( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Military leadership as applied by Genghis Khan is necessary for success in today's AirLand Battle. Like the light, mobile forces of Genghis Khan, today's warriors face a numerically superior enemy, difficult terrain, and harsh weather. This paper reviews the leadership concepts of Genghis Khan, analyzes these concepts in relation to the ten imperatives of AirLand Battle, and applies Genghis' leadership to today's warrior-leaders at all levels. The thesis--Genghis Khan was an effective military leader whose leadership concepts remain applicable to modern warrior-leaders. These concepts, corresponding in analysis to the ten imperatives of AirLand Battle, enabled Genghis' forces to overcome the odds and obstacles of the enemy, weather, and terrain. The paper concludes the modern leader must understand and apply these concepts to successfully lead his warriors to victory
Funding Engineer Operations in Countries Involved in Low-Intensity Conflicts( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using engineer units to build humanitarian assistance and civic action projects helps the US achieve its foreign policy objectives in developing countries with low-intensity conflicts. It also enhances the readiness of the engineer units by providing them high quality training which is unavailable in CONUS due to administrative restrictions. However, US law makes it extremely difficult to properly fund these operations. The paper analyzes the restrictions placed on this type of funding with emphasis on recent legislation enacted to remedy past problems in this area. It concludes that while the confusion which previously existed has been reduced, Congress has made it more difficult to obtain funds for these projects. It recommends that Titles 10 and 22, US Code be changed to permit DOD to take advantage of the benefits available through these operations
The Integration of US Army Electronic Warfare Capabilities in J-SEAD (Joint Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses) Operations( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines the operational requirements necessary to integrate US Army electronic warfare (EW) assets with US Air Force capabilities in joint suppression of enemy air defenses (J-SEAD) operations. It begins with a review of the recent joint initiatives between the Army and Air Force concerning the execution of AirLand Battle (ALB) doctrine. Next, the paper discusses J-SEAD planning considerations, to include descriptions of Army jammer systems, analysis of threat air defense systems and joint staff relationships. Execution consideration are then highlighted, focusing upon four tenets of ALB--synchronization, agility, depth and initiative. The paper concludes with conclusions and guidelines for the joint staffer tasked with planning J-SEAD operations
The All-Aspect Gunsight: Returning Short Range Combat Efficiency to the F-15( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The F-15 is unable to achieve kills quickly or efficiently in highly dynamic and unpredictable close-in combat due to the time and maneuvering required to employ its gun. This short range armament deficiency is attributable to the limited capabilities of the F-15's Lead Computing Optical Sight (LCOS). This paper advocates that the F-15 should be retrofitted with an all-aspect gunsight, namely the Enhanced Envelope Gunsight, in order to correct this significant deficiency. Supporting information includes gunsight evaluations, live fire scores, contractor data and information, and Air Force Armament Laboratory results. The paper concludes that unless the F-15 is retrofitted with an all-aspect gunsight, it will lack the capability to fight and win in the close-in visual combat arena
When the balloon goes up : barrage balloons for low-level air defense by Franklin J Hillson( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Barrage balloons were effectively used to assist in countering low-level air attacks in both World War I and II. Great Britain was convinced of its value and liberally employed aerial barrages throughout both conflicts. The United States followed suit with a large barrage balloon program during World War II. The balloons are gone, but the low-level threat still poses a problem. The barrage balloon can still provide effective, force-enhancing protection against this form of attack. Because of their point defense capability, barrage balloons are ideally suited for air base defense
Book Analysis of Eisenhower and Berlin, 1945 the Decision to Halt at the Elbe( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project looks at General Eisenhower's decision in 1945 to halt the Allies at the Elbe River. The analysis describes and analyzes this historical decision to determine if General Eisenhower's approach in making this decision is a good example for today's military leaders. The analysis conclusion is General Eisenhower, utilizing his leadership traits of self-confidence, certainty of belief and emphasis on teamwork, made an excellent decision to halt at the Elbe River. The lesson to be learned from General Eisenhower's decision process is the importance of the teamwork concept to a leader in a Joint environment
USAF Flying Screening: First Step on the Road to Wings( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current high attrition rate in USAF pilot training is partly due to high potential eliminees entering the training system. This study examines the flight screening programs of West Germany, Great Britain, Canada, Israel, and the US Navy, and makes observations on significant features in each of the programs. Recommendations are made based on lifting the best features from each program and integrating them into the current USAF flying screening program. By improving the screening process, fewer high potential eliminees will enter the USAF pilot training system, leading to a lower attrition rate. Keywords: Air Force training
The Use of Commercial Off-the-Shelf Equipment and Its Impact on C3 (Command, Control, and Communications) EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) Survivability( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The President's Blue Ribbon Commission on Defense Management has recommended that the military should make greater use of off-the-shelf components, systems, and services (also know as non-developmental items or NDI). This recommendation, if blindly implemented, could have an adverse impact on the survivability of critical command, control, and communications assets. The study evaluates how the electromagnetic pulse (EMP) survivability of a strategic, time-urgent, fixed, ground-based, command, control, and communications (C3) facility would be impacted by the use of off-the-shelf C3 equipments. The study concludes that to have a quantifiable measure of confidence in the facility's EMP survivability, the piece of off-the-shelf equipment under consideration will first have to be subjected to some degree of EMP testing
Who Is Going to Shoot Down the First ICBM (Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles) - Man or Machine( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The short time available to attack ballistic missiles with a Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) weapon system will preclude traditional national level decision making. A unique command and control (C2) concept is required to best serve the balance between effectiveness and weapon system safety. This article develops that concept with a blend of autonomous operation with man in the loop and advocates early resolution to ensure C2 strategy and tactics push technology development
USAF Presence in Latin America in the 21st Century by Tony Simpson( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report develops options for maintaining a physical USAF presence in Latin America after 1999 when the Panama Canal Treaty expires and the U.S. loses access to its bases in Panama. The report first explains the strategic importance of Latin America to the United States, then establishes U.S. military objectives in the region. It then proceeds to determine whether or not a physical USAF presence is in fact needed in the area to support those objectives, concluding one is necessary. Finally, it develops a model for a presence consisting of reactivating major and minor facilities, establishing new ones, increasing Air Attache positions, and establishing an Air Force Civic Action Program
Doctrine for Strategic Aerospace Offensive Operations by Thomas E Angle( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study evaluates the need for operational doctrine for the strategic aerospace offensive mission. It shows the advantages of having this doctrine and the problems during the Korean and Vietnam Wars caused by not having appropriate doctrine. The study also shows recent attempts to write strategic operational doctrine are inadequate and create confusion about the nature of this mission. The study concludes this doctrine is needed and provides a proposed draft for an operational doctrine manual covering this mission
Training Approaches in AFLC (Air Force Logistics Command) Procurement( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this project is to recommend way(s) to save time in implementing many policy changes. Learning takes time, and time costs money. In any large corporate structure whenever a policy change is injected into the system, a certain amount of time transpires before the new policy is assimilated into all facets of the corporation. Massive changes generally take longer to incorporate than do minor changes due to the span of control and the degree of reeducation. A minor change may only have a localized or limited application. This project examines if procurement personnel in the Air Force Logistics Command (AFLC) can be more effective in their capability to incorporate policy changes into the acquisition process. Specifically, recommendations for a more tailored training approach will be offered. This report reviews the scope of responsibilities performed by AFLC procurement personnel, examining statistical data including AFLC sites; number of personnel; management structure; number of contracts issued; amount of dollars obligated; estimated costs involved in adding one more day to the pipeline for all AFLC due-in assets
Air National Guard Full-Time Support( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Full-time support for the Air National Guard is federally funded and subject to federal law and rules for its administration. Retirement benefits are a positive motivator for a career force, but also require clear rules for members to believe they can reach retirement. The purpose of this report is to establish the need to revise Air National Guard (ANG) regulations controlling Active Guard Reserve (AGR) members and to provide a history of full-time support in the National Guard. ANGR 35-03 Military Personnel Management needs to be revised to conform to federal laws concerning reservists on active duty. Promotion, professional military education, and active mission support should be centrally managed to use military duty members
Differences in Mechanism Between Syncope Resulting from Rapid Onset Acceleration and Orthostatic Stress( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Orthostatically- induced syncope is accompanied by venous pooling and vasodilatation. Loss of consciousness during head-to-foot acceleration (G-LOC) in aviators may be caused by a different mechanism, as venous pooling should be prevented through the use of an anti-G suit. This research was conducted to test the hypothesis that in individuals wearing a well-fitted anti-G garment, there are no important changes in volume of dependent regions during loss of consciousness resulting from rapid onset acceleration stress. Furthermore, this work compares venous pooling patterns in G-LOC subjects to patterns seen during syncope in volunteers and patients subjected to orthostatic stress. The tilt/LBNP tests were conducted to establish what level of venous pooling was required to induce syncope in the absence of a hydrostatic component (other than 1 G) and to confirm that our equipment was sensitive enough to detect volume changes large enough to cause syncope
The ground-launched cruise missile in NATO : political aspects by Charles G Crupper( )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper is a historical analysis of the political aspects of deploying the ground-launched cruise missile (GLCM) in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) nations. The paper first identifies United States (US) political and military reasons for deployment of the GLCM. Secondly, it traces diplomacy between the US and NATO leading to NATO's concurrence to deploy the GLCM. Thirdly, it identifies political problems encountered by deploying NATO nations, up to the actual deployment of GLCMs in each nation. Lastly, as a result of analyzing the historical data presented, the paper develops both positive and negative political lessons learned from the deployment process for future use
Bush's new world order : the meaning behind the words by Bart Raymond Kessler( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The phrase new world order has been widely used on the political scene since first publicly coined by former president, George Bush. Although quickly adopted as the catch phrase of the 1990s, few people actually agree on what new world order really means. Since new world order, while elusive in definition, is most frequently used to describe aspects of the post Cold War international scenario, understanding the true meaning of that phrase is critical to projecting our future strategic environment and prospects for the new millennium. The attempt of this paper is to reveal that true meaning. Historical analysis will be the primary methodology used to reveal the meaning of George Bush's specific terminology describing his concept of new world order. In a January 16, 1991 speech, he identified the opportunity to build a new world order where the rule of law governs the conduct of nations, and in which a credible United Nations can use its peacekeeping role to fulfill the promise and vision of the UN's founders. These words will be dissected and historically analyzed to develop a clear picture of new world order. Additionally, the primary mechanisms for implementing new world order will be addressed; and finally, specific strategic environment and national security implications will be drawn from those conclusions
They too served : 496th Fighter Training Group, 1943-45 by David H Kelley( )

2 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1944 a young man from Nahant, Massachusetts, experienced World War II as an unsung corporal assigned to an unheralded unit near an obscure English village. Few history books recall his war. But he and his unit personified a brand of service seldom newsworthy, often tedious, always selfless that underpinned Allied victory. This man was my father. This research paper is his unit's story. In-theater combat crew replacement centers (CCRC) represented a brief but important stop for aircrews training as replacements for personnel lost in the European theater during World War II. The Eighth Air Force's 496th Fighter Training Group operated a fighter CCRC at Goxhill, England, and illustrated the unique challenges and successes of the CCRC mission. The 496th Fighter Training Group overcame maintenance shortfalls, aircraft shortages, and persistent morale issues to train more than 2,400 fighter pilots for combat duty in the Lockheed P-38 Lightning and North American P-51 Mustang
