Abstract:

In 2035, some states Integrated Air Defense Systems will be able to find, fix, track, target, and engage our current air dominance aircraft. US operations in this environment may prove costly and threaten heavy aircraft losses. Worse, decisive air operations, the hallmark of US military strategy for nearly 60 years, may not be possible in hyper-defended airspace. As one commentator put it, the US is confronted with a strategic choice to risk loss of military access to areas vital to its national security or to explore options for preserving access.
