DEFENSE SCIENCE BOARD WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
This document contains the final report of the DSB Task Force on Joint Precision Interdiction JPI. The work of the Task Force drew on several years effort of the DSB Task Force on Follow-On Force Attack FOFA in which emphasis was placed on evaluation of the risk associated with developmental sensor and weapons technologies. EUCOM did pioneering work in developing operational concepts and mission definitions relating to the application of new systems under the name jOint Precision Interdiction. The Task Force found that planning for the acquisition of the sensors and weapons were well structured through resulting in a slower introduction into the Services than one might prefer. However, major difficulties were identified relating to the information systems and command and control intelligence systems required to implement the JOINT application of JSTARS, Battlefield Intelligence Systems, Precision Guided Weapons and Smart Munitions.
