Abstract:

Low observable LO aircraft and cruise missiles give U.S. military forces the technical capability to successfully attack well-defended ground targets with substantially reduced risk of engagement by enemy defenses. But fully exploiting these new technical capabilities in a range of warfighting scenarios requires developing an intelligence infrastructure that can support the special capabilities and requirements of LO technologies. If this infrastructure is not developed by upgrading the existing infrastructure, the operational value of LO aircraft and cruise missiles will be sharply reduced.
