Pentagon Solutions: DoD strategy, Air-Sea Battle and sequestration
Wednesday - 9/5/2012, 6:50pm EDT
The growing rise of China as a military power has helped draw attention to the new concept.
"The Air-Sea Battle concept seeks to use new technologies to counter these perceived Chinese initiatives as well as similar — if more modest — efforts by Iran to challenge U.S. capabilities in the Persian Gulf," O'Hanlon wrote in an op-ed published in The Washington Post. "Air-Sea Battle rightly emphasizes improved command-and-control, precision strike, advanced missile defenses, robotics, submarine operations, and the use of air and space domains. So far, it has not involved big new weapons platforms."
O'Hanlon also discussed the ticking sequestration clock, which is driving a lot of decision making in government and in the contracting world.
The timeline of events after sequestration would happen is starting to get more attention from experts, O'Hanlon said, but the uncertainty probably won't go away any time soon.
