ABSTRACT

New Technology for NATO: Implementing Follow-On Forces Attack   [open pdf - 4MB]

The adoption of the Follow-On Forces Attack (FOFA) concept has raised a number of serious, complicated, and interrelated issues for the United States and the other members of NATO. The range of issues is broad-encompassing political, military, and technological questions-although no single issue is dramatic enough to garner headlines in any but the most specialized press. The report briefly reviews what FOFA is and how it fits into NATO strategy, but is primarily concerned with the outstanding technical issues, how our Allies view FOFA, how the Soviets might respond to it, and how the various technical developments might be brought together into "packages" of systems to support specific operational concepts.
