    Interview with Gen. Kevin P. Chilton

  • Global Space Protector
    Interview with General James E. Cartwright
    Commander, United States Strategic Command Offutt Air Force Base, Neb.
  • A B-52 Standoff?
    The cancellation of the Air Force’s B-52 standoff jammer leaves the Navy shouldering that electronic warfare mission. The Air Force says it is studying the alternatives, but opinions differ whether it will get back into the game.
  • A-10 Makeover On The Horizon
    The A-10 Thunderbolt II, aka the Warthog, has long been admired for its effectiveness in achieving its mission of close air support of ground forces. A comprehensive upgrade package for the aircraft is expected to move it from the analog to digital age.
  • Blocking The Ballistic Threat
    The Missile Defense Agency has developed a multifaceted strategy to accomplish its mission. Spiral development in two-year blocks allows the agency to refine program objectives as technology becomes available.
  • WMD Center Sparks Collaboration
    The Center for Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction at U.S. Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) has reached full operational capability. The USSTRATCOM WMD Center integrates and synchronizes efforts to combat global WMD proliferation.
  • Hypersonic Strike
    The BGM-109 Tomahawk missile has served the Navy well, providing combat ships with the ability to strike targets on land or at seas from long ranges. The Navy is now seeking a missile with speeds up to 6 Mach to take out time-sensitive targets.
  • Protecting America’s Space Interests
    The contribution of space is critical to the United State’s strategic missile defense and intelligence community as well as homeland security, diplomacy and the economy. Emerging threats could challenge the nation’s space advantage.
