Abstract:

A ground medical expeditionary support response is needed in an A2AD environment. Depending on the threat, the U.S. military will operate in new and austere locations. In this paper, we examine HIT and how it acts as a force enabler and mitigates the adversarys A2AD approach to limit the United States US militarys power projection. As the Department of Defense DoD rebalances the force with more focus on the Asia-Pacific region, this paper identifies the Air-Sea Battle ASB concept, US militarys primary strategy to A2AD, and how HIT alleviates challenges associated within an A2AD setting.
