Abstract:

For people who place themselves in harms way, it is easy to recognize a transformational capability. If you are going to fly a combat sortie into Country X, you analyze everything this adversary can throw at you and assess whether you canwill survive. If he has a lethal capability, like an SA-20, you have to ask, What system capability do I need in order to survive and be combat effective If the answers arent satisfactory from a system perspective for either survival or combat effectiveness, you can then assess your concept of operations to see if there is any way you can increase your odds or effectiveness. If it still looks bad, you start checking for a sinus block or a maintenance nondelivery, or begin the process of groveling to your commander to cancel the mission because failure is imminent
