About this Item

Paperback. 114 pages. Dimensions: 9.7in. x 7.4in. x 0.2in.This study investigates the Joint Vision 2010 concept of precision engagement and its impact on future AC-130 gunship modernization requirements. The primary purpose of this thesis is to assist long-range planners at United States Special Operations Command and Air Force Special Operations Command in the preparation of AC-130 modernization strategies which implement advanced technology precision engagement systems on the gunship. This study employs a strategy-to-task-to-need approach to derive tactical-level precision engagement mission tasks from Joint Chiefs of Staff, conventional military service, and Special Operations Forces publications which describe the employment of precision engagement systems in support of twenty-first century military operations. Based upon these tactical-level precision engagement tasks, current Department of Defense science and technology planning documents are subsequently examined for advanced material technologies related to these mission requirements. Ultimately, this thesis identifies specific material technologies and capabilities which should be installed on AC-130 gunships in order for this aircraft to provide effective firepower in support of military operations in the 2010 timeframe. The effort concludes with recommendations related to the implementation of these precision engagement capabilities on AC-130 gunships. This item ships from multiple locations.
