ABSTRACT

Air Land Sea Bulletin [Winter 2017]   [open pdf - 14MB]

"The ALSA [Air Land Sea Application] Center publishes the ALSB [Air Land Sea Bulletin] two times a year. ALSA is a multi-Service Department of Defense field agency sponsored by the US Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC), Marine Corps Combat Development Command (MCCDC), Navy Warfare Development Command (NWDC), and Curtis E. LeMay Center for Doctrine Development and Education (LeMay Center). The ALSB is a vehicle to 'spread the word' on recent developments in warfighting concepts, issues, and Service interoperability. The intent is to provide a cross-Service flow of information among readers around the globe. [...] The first article [...] discusses the importance of space access to facilitate using US instruments of national power. The second article [...] explores the threats posed by unmanned aerial systems, the abundance of new technology, and ways to mitigate the effectiveness of adversarial systems while on the battlefield. The third article [...] discusses the outcome of a joint test conducted to improve the resilience in links used during the roll back of anti-access and area denial operations. The fourth article [...] provide[s] analyses on current doctrine and joint air attack teams resulting from participating in an ALSA-led joint working group. The fifth article [...] calls for a renewed emphasis on 13L specialists to integrate joint fires due to a lack of training based on the recent operational environment. The final article [...] describes the impacts of space weather and space events on terrestrial operations. It indicates ground forces, and the systems they rely on, are becoming more and more space dependent."
