Abstract:

This research paper envisions specific United States Air Force USAF Expeditionary Security Operations ESO capabilities and enabling technologies in the 2040 timeframe. Technological advances provide opportunities to increase future USAF capabilities to conduct base security and counter-threat operations CTO to protect forward bases from ever-evolving challenges and threats to deployed personnel and assets. Although individual ESO capabilities and technologies may seem relatively insignificant standing alone, the ability to secure personnel, aircraft, and equipment is all-important to USAF force projection in the future.
