The Link 16 communications system enables network-centric operations (NCO) in ways that voice-only communications cannot. How does Link 16 increase the mission effectiveness of U.S. air forces in combat translate into success in the air-to-air battle? More than 12,000 sorties were flown in the Joint Tactical Information Distribution System Operational Special Project, where Link 16 and voice-only communications systems were evaluated. Using a series of NCO performance metrics, the authors measured results and determined which areas were improved by the use of Link 16 and by how much compared t

The long-term success of the counterterror campaign will depend on concerted cooperation from European states, but a key question is the extent to which that cooperation should be pursued through European multilateral institutions. NATO has not yet reoriented itself to challenge terrorism, although it has adopted a number of initiatives to improve its counterterror capabilities. The European Union is limited in its military and intelligence capabilities, although it has taken a number of initiatives in Justice and Home Affairs. This study argues that the United States should pursue military

Restrictions on military-to-military relations with China imposed in 2001 stirred a debate about the value of those activities and their place in the overall U.S.-China relationship. This report examines the debate on security cooperation between the two countries and finds that there is value in the relationship, despite its problems. The debate centers around four major issues of contention: the potential risk to U.S. national security of military relations with China, the potential benefits of the relationship to the United States, whether the United States can expect to influence China thr

With continued military downsizing and base closures, cleanup of unexploded ordnance (UXO) at former weapons ranges has become one of the most costly environmental problems the military faces. This study examines cost estimation for UXO remediation conducted at closed military installations, the difficulties of accurately estimating cleanup costs, and the major effects that different cleanup requirements and methods can have on cost. It assesses previous estimates of UXO cleanup costs and evaluates the strengths and limitations of the military

Contemporary Islam is struggling within itself over its values, identity, and place in the world, with rivals contending for spiritual and political dominance--as well as with the "outside" world. In Western eyes, the ideal Islamic community would be democratic, economically viable, politically stable, and socially progressive and would follow the rules and norms of international conduct. But as the international community strives to understand all this and, possibly, influence the outcome, the best approaches--or even whom to approach--are not always easy to determine. As an aid to the proc
