Abstract:

The military investment balance since 1970 has significantly shifted toward the Soviet Union. This trend and a growing reliance on high technology portends an erosion of the US qualitative advantage in weaponry. This paper addresses the Army RD process and the technological requirements implied by the AirLand Battle 2000 concept. A strategy is offered to provide a program balanced between near-term modernization and the generation of an array of technology options for achieving battlefield superiority in the 21st Century.
