Alternate Title: 2017 Defense Science Board Summer Study on Long Range Effects
"In November 2016, the Under Secretary for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics (USD(AT&L)) requested that the Defense Science Board (DSB) conduct a Summer Study on Countering Anti-Access Systems with Longer Range and Standoff Capabilities. The DSB assembled a task force composed of national leaders in science and technology and Department of Defense (DoD) industry with expertise in all aspects of delivering long range effects. This report presents the key findings and recommendations that resulted from task force deliberations. Nine specific recommendations for delivering long range effects in a contested Anti-Access/Area Denial (A2/AD) environment through employment of the Assault Breaker II (AB II) concept are offered for consideration by the Department of Defense."
