ABSTRACT

Reintegrating Short Range Air Defense into the Maneuver Fight   [open pdf - 5MB]

From the Thesis Abstract: "As the United States faces growing global uncertainty, the need to renew key military capabilities is vital to fight and win across any conflict that threatens U.S. interests. To retain overmatch, the combination of our capabilities must be relevant to successfully deter our potential adversaries. The Army's investment to incorporate Maneuver Short Range Air Defense into each division is a move towards this end. This thesis examines the future readiness of these forces using a historical and an Australian case study as examples of successful integration of similar capabilities at similar echelons. This study leverages historical doctrine while comparing it to modern guidance. It synthesizes our current readiness with historical success, yielding areas for development prior to reintegration. The research aims to answer the question: How can the US Army best set the Leadership and Training conditions for reintegration of divisional Short Range Air Defense?"
