Abstract:

The changing face of warfare and it migration from large state-on-state conflicts to Irregular Warfare is dramatically changing the requirements laid down by the Department of Defense for acquiring and disseminating information. Creating Situational Awareness and information for all levels of decision makers from the President to the Marine on the ground will require significant changes. In response, The Air Force Research Laboratory has established an urgent and focused long-term strategy to improve Situational Awareness technologies. This document helps to outline that strategy by defining the context of a new technology construct called Layered Sensing. This report fully defines the attributes and context of Layered Sensing and describes its implications for driving AFRL research. AFRL recognizes that this document represents a living, evolving construct. This document will be periodically reviewed, revised, and re-released as the concept evolves.
