21 December 2001 Rapid targeting in support of time-critical strike
Author Affiliations +
The US Navy has developed and demonstrated rapid targeting technologies that, when combined, support a time critical strike capability. The interaction of these existing technologies (i.e. real-time tactical manned reconnaissance, real-time image screening/geo-registration, and image seeking smart munitions) provide an immediate rapid targeting capability and lay the foundation for future manned and fully automated time critical strike systems. This paper describes the existing rapid targeting technologies and the concept of operations for integrating these technologies for time critical strike. It also projects potential time strike capabilities that can be achieved and deployed in the near future.
