Title Improving Air-Ground Operations on the Complex Battlefield.
Publication Date Mar 2013
Media Count 42p
Personal Author A. Streeter
Abstract The U.S. military has relearned many lessons in air-ground integration while conducting small unit, decentralized operations on a complex battlefield. The projected environment that the military will operate in over the next twenty years will likely be more interconnected, the threat more capable, and the conditions equally unstable. Changes must be made to our leader and JTAC training and education programs to develop the attributes and skills necessary to meet the challenges of the future operational environment. Leader education must produce leaders who have expertise, are agile, adaptable, and tenacious, and who place trust in their subordinates in order to effectively conduct AGI and maximize the potential effects of responsive, agile assets. JTAC training must produce JTACs who are masters of their craft, able to rapidly develop innovative attack solutions in order to defeat an elusive enemy and minimize collateral damage. In order to meet the requirements of the future Joint Force, the Army must develop an organic capability to coordinate and execute air-ground operations. The result will be an agile, flexible, rapidly deployable Army that can rapidly integrate and decisively execute on a complex battlefield.
