Abstract:

This project addresses air support to land component operations. Air support includes air interdiction and close air support. The project examines current U.S. air support doctrine and reviews the Operation Desert Storm experience pertaining to air support. A crosswalk is conducted between Desert Storm air support issues and specific features of current doctrine. The project provides recommendations to warfighting Commanders in Chief on measures to ensure effective air support within their command and proposes a far term approach for Joint Vision 2010.
