The first time a caveman chief ordered one of his troops up a tree to get a better fix on the mastodon herd, airborne reconnaissance and surveillance, in a sense, was born. Every field commander since that caveman has asked the same basic questions: Where is the mastodon herd, what are its numbers and disposition, and what are its intentions? The answers to those questions have always formed the basis for all operational decisions and subsequent mission execution and the accuracy of the answers, has, until relatively recent times, largely determined the success or failure of a military operation.
