1 This Briefing is: UNCLASSIFIED Headquarters Air Combat Command 1 Air Armament Symposium Maj Gen Jack Catton HQ ACC/A8 4-5 Oct 05

2 2 Setting the Stage Joint & Combined Operations are here to stay What Today’s Weapons bring to the Joint Fight What Future Weapons need to bring to the Joint Fight

3 3 Supporting the Joint War Fighter seen through our ACC/A8 lens: Acquire Sustain Modernize Joint Warfare Joint force’s two main strengths: A diverse set of capabilities inherent in the various services and other organizations that comprise the force An exceptional ability to integrate those capabilities in pursuit of a common aim Weapons support Joint Warfare Attributes

4 4 Joint Attributes Knowledge empowered Networked Interoperable Expeditionary Adaptable / Tailorable Enduring / Persistent Precise Fast Resilient Agile Lethal CAPSTONE CONCEPT for JOINT OPERATIONS Version 2.0 July 2005

5 5 Weapons Capabilities (ACC/A8’s Top 8) Adverse weather capable More precise Increased carriage Extended range Improved mobile target kill Increased flexibility Warhead versatility Data linked In support of Joint Attributes

6 6 Adverse Weather Technologies GPS, INS Guidance Seekers Automatic Target Recognition Persistent, Resilient, Lethal WCMD WCMD-ER SDB I & II JDAM JSOW JASSM Yesterday Today Tomorrow MK-80 Series Effects Deny Weather sanctuary Navigation and impact accuracy

7 7 More Precise Technologies Laser Guidance GPS/INS Guidance Seekers Directed Energy Precise, Lethal, Expeditionary LGB Yesterday Today DE Tomorrow WCMD WCMD-ER SDB I & II JSOW JASSM JDAM Effects Service more targets per sortie Smaller Warheads Minimize collateral damage

8 8 Increased Carriage Technologies Weapon size Bomb rack capability Persistent, Lethal, Fast, Adaptable / Tailorable Tomorrow Yesterday Today WCMD Pneumatic Racks BRU-61 SDB I & II BRU-57 JSOW Effects Force multiplier Targets per sortie Smart BRA JDAM 1 “Smart Bomb” per pylon

9 9 Extended range Technologies GPS/INS Guidance Standoff with wings Seekers Resilient, Lethal, Enduring / Persistent JASSM-ER JASSM Yesterday Today Tomorrow WCMD SDB I & II JSOW WCMD-ER JDAM Effects Target access Reduces attrition Battle field coverage

10 10 Improved Mobile Target Kill Technologies Direct laser or EO / IR guidance Wide area munitions coverage Future seekers and Data Link Agile, Fast, Precise, Interoperable WCMD LGB Hellfire Yesterday Tomorrow Maverick Land Maritime Today Effects Deny sanctuary Navigation and impact accuracy

11 11 Increased Flexibility Technologies Cockpit reprogrammable fuze Mixed weapons loadout UAI Interoperable, Adaptable / Tailorable, Agile Tomorrow Yesterday Today Universal Armament Interface Multi-Event Fuzing Effects Maximize lethality Minimize collateral damage Field weapons faster Joint Programmable Fuze FMU-152 JDAM and LGB

12 12 Warhead Versatility Technologies Varying effects Alternate fills Self destruct (clean battlefield) Agile, Lethal, Adaptable / Tailorable Massive Ordnance Air Burst Penetrator Tomorrow Yesterday Today Penetrator BLU-113/122 SFW Dial a Yield Agent Defeat Passive Attack Weapon (PAW) Effects Deny enemy any sanctuary Cleaner battle field Weapons tailored to target

13 13 Enablers Weapon In-Flight Tracking Re-Targeting Bomb Impact Assessment Abort capability Data Linked Networked, Knowledge Empowered, Agile, Precise, Adaptable / Tailorable, Fast, Enduring / Persistent, Lethal Technologies Common message set Miniaturized components Multi wave forms Networked weapons & platforms

14 14 Summary Joint & Combined Warfare is here to stay Key Joint Attributes supported by our weapons capabilities and each Service’s core competencies build a great joint team Weapons of Today are great but Future weapons must be even Better in order to maintain the clear advantage our nation enjoys today Thank YOU all for helping build the #1 Team in the World
