Abstract:

AirLand Battle - Future ALB-F concepts portray a battlefield, where smaller, highly mobile, and self-contained forces maneuver to decisive points revealed by accurate sensor technology. The corps and brigade roles expand in ALB-F, while the role of the division is greatly reduced. Since nonlinearity dictates an expansion in battlefield space, it is imperative that force designers consider designs that will save time in both planning and executing ALB-F operations.
