Abstract : The uncertainty of both the type of future conflict and the role of the US military in it creates challenges for ISR planners. The additional stress of humanitarian crises and natural disasters threaten regional stability and stretch US military commitments. However, by investing in technologies that advance ISR in support of HA/DR missions, the US can develop engagement opportunities with vulnerable states, improving interoperability and information sharing while simultaneously reducing instability and capitalizing on ISRs dual applicability to HA/DR and security.
