Paper - Employing ISR
A recent paper has been published in the January-February 2014 Air & Space Power Journal entitled "Employing Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance: Organizing, Training, and Equipping to Get it Right". The paper states that the Department of Defense must move forward quickly to not only acquire ISR systems but needs to also define how they will be employed and who is to manage the ISR system or network. The author says that there is a lack of joint and service-specific guidance or employment standards. The guidance is necessary to ensure mission success and the effective integration of ISR at the tactical level.
