Abstract
IF THE UNITED STATES ENTERS INTO A STRATEGIC ARMS CONTROL AGREEMENT WHICH SIGNIFICANTLY CUTS BACK THE NUMBER OF STRATEGIC WARHEADS, NEW CONSIDERATIONS ARE INTRODUCED INTO ICBM BASING CONSIDERATIONS. WHILE A PEACEKEEPER RAIL GARRISON COMBINED WITH SMALL ICBMS IN HMLS MAY BE SUFFICIENT IN THE NEAR OR INTERMEDIATE TERM, THERE ARE REASONS TO CONSIDER A NEW BASING APPROACH FOR THE FAR TERM. THIS PROPOSAL IS TO UPDATE A CONCEPT WHICH STARTED A A "HARD TEL, SOFT TUNNEL" APPROACH IN A PREVIOUS STUDY. THIS CONCEPT WILL BE TECHNICALLY UPDATED FOR FAR TERM APPLICATIONS AND EVALUATED FOR SURVIVABILITY AND COST EFFECTIVENESS.
