Rapid force projection technologies : assessing the performance of advanced ground sensors ( )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This documented briefing summarizes research supporting the Rapid Force Protection Initiative (RFPI) Advanced Concept Technology Demonstration (ACTD), with the goal of exploring new technology concepts for the ACTD. The focus of this research was on advanced distributed ground sensors--specifically the air-deliverable acoustic sensor (ADAS)--with emphasis on how such sensors might fit into the current RFPI hunter/standoff killer concept. High-resolution simulation was used to examine and quantify many of the key aspects of performance, environmental effects, and military utility
Rapid force projection technologies : a quick-look analysis of advanced light indirect fire systems ( )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In recent years, light, rapid-reaction forces have become a staple of U.S. military strategy and planning. Instead of defending predetermined regions with large, prepositioned forces, current U.S. plans call for quick and decisive deployments of lightly armed forces into locations of potential or actual hostilities. Equipping these forces with new or expected-to-be-developed hunter/killer capabilities--a combination of standoff weapons, sophisticated reconnaissance and targeting systems, and efficient counterbattery weapons--would greatly increase their lethality and survivability. Such an arsenal would be more effective than these forces' current firepower, which relies heavily on direct-fire, line-of-sight technologies, and would allow light forces to carry out the wider range of missions that military strategists have envisioned for them. These conclusions are supported by recent RAND research on the Rapid-Force Projection Initiative (RFPI), one of the Pentagon's new advanced-concept technology demonstrations. Using computer simulations, RAND analysts examined, compared, and contrasted new technologies and systems that would allow light forces to better withstand and overcome attacks from larger, more heavily armed forces in varying terrain. This annotated briefing presents results from a "quick look" analysis that was requested by the RFPI sponsoring office. The intention of the analysis is to provide decisionmakers with an assessment of the effectiveness of differing advanced indirect fire weapon alternatives to the light airborne forces. This briefing is a companion document to DB-168-A/OSD, Rapid Force Projection: Exploring New Technology Concepts for Light Airborne Forces, R. Steeb, J. Matsumura, et al., 1996

Using computer simulations, RAND analysts examined, compared, and contrasted new technologies and systems that would allow light forces to better withstand and overcome attacks from larger, more heavily armed forces in varying terrain. This documented briefing describes the simulation tools, the scenarios used for the analysis, and the findings resulting from the research. The simulation results suggest that a division ready brigade (DRB) can be improved to fight and survive against a current and future heavy force. The "hunter/standoff killer" concept, made possible by a number of emerging technologies, proved to be major contributor to the success of a DRB against a larger, more maneuverable heavy force.

Lightning over water : sharpening America's light forces for rapid-reaction missions ( Book )
3 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As the world continues its post-Cold War thaw, fears of major theater-level war have given way to a reality of increased numbers of smaller regional conflicts and crises. There is a growing need for a quickly deploying, rapid-reaction capability--in particular, U.S. Army light forces--to directly respond to these events. To address this need, both the Secretary of the Army and the Chief of Staff of the Army are calling for developing forces that are strategically responsive across the full spectrum of military operations. Although there is new dialogue on what might be done, there is also considerable research that has examined many of the issues now coming to light, such as, "How might light forces be changed to offer greater rapid-reaction capability?" This executive summary synthesizes research drawn from numerous studies conducted by the authors in the past few years on the topic of improving light air-deployable forces. The full report, MR-1196-A/OSD, provides more detail for the analysis and conclusions presented in this document. The focus is on the topic of new operational concepts along with the underlying enabling technologies. Three very different means for improving rapid-reaction capability are considered and analyzed in detail, with both strengths and weaknesses included in the assessment. This book was written primarily for the soldiers who will be developing such future capabilities; however, policymakers and technologists involved in improving rapid-reaction capability should also find it of interest
Perspectives on the Battle of Wanat challenges of small unit operations in Afghanistan ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The research reported in this document is focused on exploring alternatives for improving ongoing small unit operations in Afghanistan. The effort attempts to provide a more hands-on look at the situation that platoon-sized units face in establishing and protecting combat outposts (COPs). Using the Battle of Wanat as a case study, the authors explore and evaluate a range of alternative technological and corresponding tactical improvements. They begin the process by developing a tactical-level understanding of the circumstances and risks that a small unit faced as it transitioned from a vehicle patrol base to a COP. Future research will examine near-term technologies and tactics, along with alternative concepts of operation that could improve future outcomes for such small units
Future ground commanders' close support needs and desirable system characteristics ( )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The fundamental importance of close support (augmenting firepower to support engaged ground forces) has been understood for decades, but Desert Storm and more recent operations have raised questions about whether the demand for close support has changed or even disappeared. Changed demand might, in turn, require new or different capabilities. To explore these questions, the authors developed detailed combat vignettes to illustrate situations in which close support could be critical, defined success criteria, then simulated the effects of varying types and levels of close support. The results suggest that there are situations in which close support may not be helpful (most notably, in an ambush) but that it may be crucial in others (such as a prepared defense by light forces). While timing can be important, other important matters are matching the damage patterns of weapons to target dimensions; choosing appropriate types and capabilities of weapons for the situation, with terminally guided submunitions having special potential value; and taking advantage of all available sensor and targeting systems, unmanned aerial vehicles in particular

The Army after next : exploring new concepts and technologies for the light battle force ( )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This document summarizes the initial year's work on the project "Assessing Advanced Concepts and Technologies for the Army After Next (AAN)." At the request of TRADOC, Deputy Chief of Staff for Doctrine (DCSDOC), RAND Arroyo Center initiated this project about halfway into FY97. The overall intent of the effort was to provide force-on-force simulation-based analytic support to the AAN initiative and support the series of wargames. The effort involves the use of high-resolution constructive simulation to explore both operational concepts and technology options for the light battle force concept associated with the AAN initiative. One of the key capabilities required of the light battle force is an ability to hide and wait for the right opportunity and then create a "virtual ambush," resulting in a shock or disintegration of the enemy. This kind of defeat, to some extent, is in contrast to more traditional attrition in that it greatly compresses the time in which lethality occurs. Essentially, the concept envisions allowing an advancing threat to penetrate, after which the battle force unleashes massive simultaneous fires from afar and closer in. To accomplish this, unprecedented amounts of survivability (possibly in the form of stealth) and lethality (in the form of precsion guided weapons) would be required. Thus, as a starting point, the project examined those two critical aspects of the light battle force concept via our simulation and modeling
