Page 95 - Systems concepts being examined include endoatmospheric and exoatmospheric defenses. The integration of these into a multi-tiered defense in depth provides a logical and evolutionary growth path for BMD to a wide range of future options to counter a continued buildup of the Soviet threat in both quantity and quality.
Page 465 - What if free people could live secure in the knowledge that their security did not rest upon the threat of instant US retaliation to deter a Soviet attack, that we could intercept and destroy strategic ballistic missiles before they reached our own soil or that of our allies?
Page 103 - Device (DMD and FIST DMD) will continue to be the "forward entry devices" in AFATDS and are "not" part of the AFATDS funding program. Lastly, AFATDS represents the Army's first automated program that is truly "software driven". Specifically, prior to any hardware consideration, user requirements must be accurately defined and then translated, through software development, into a DOD higher order level language (Ada). Once the user software Is written, then the hardware will be selected. This approach...

The United States will consider verifiable and equitable arms control measures that would ban or otherwise limit testing and deployment of specific weapons systems, should those measures be compatible with United States national security.
Page 87 - ... a conscious effort to down-size all new equipment being developed. This means we are making the equipment lighter and smaller, as well as more lethal. The use of composite material and plastic in armor plate may allow us to produce a nonmetallic armor which has a weight savings of 15 to 20 percent. The Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data System (AFATDS) now in development will be considerably smaller as well as much more capable than its predecessor.
Page 29 - R&D programs and for operations. AirLand Battle is already being implemented with the forces and equipment now in the field However, the full development of the power of this concept depends on the exploitation of emerging technologies in sensors to see deep, in smart munitions to strike deep, and in data processing and telecommunications to rapidly manage these resources. Our scientific and technology base in the US uniquely positions us to do this and. thus, to establish a major advantage over...
