Fleeting Targets: Logic Flow
• In the future, most military targets will be fleeting – mobile, time-sensitive & hard to track.
• U.S. forces are resolving the issues associated with finding & targeting conventional mobile targets (SAM’s, Scud launchers, etc.).
• But plans for addressing unconventional fleeting targets – terrorists, insurgents, weapons traffickers – may be grounded in unrealistic assumptions.
— Surface access to areas of interest
— Timely funding of transformational tools
— Utility of orbital sensors
— Availability of airborne sensors
• The military needs to rethink what will be feasible & available for finding fleeting targets in the future.
