Abstract
THE ADVANCED MANNED AERIAL SCOUT (AMAS) PROJECT ISA PHASE PROGRAM TO DEFINE AND DEVELOP A MODERN, LIGHT, FIXED-WING AIRCRAFT TO BE THE LINCHPIN OF COMBINED-ARMS OPERATIONS AND DOMINATE THE LOW-ALTITUDE BATTLEFIELD ARENA. IT IS INTENDED NOT ONLY TO REPLACE EXISTING OBSERVATION AIRCRAFT, BUT ALSO TO SUPPLANT THE CURTAILED OH-58D PROGRAM, COMPLIMENT THE LHX, ACAF, AND INTERIM CAS PROGRAM, AND MAKE POSSIBLE TRUE COMBINED-ARMS, MANEUVER WARFARE. PHASE I WILL CONSIST OF THREE FOCUSED PAPERS ANALYZING (1) THE LOW-ALTITUDE BATTLEFIELD ARENA AND THE "INDIAN TERRITORY" BENEATH IT; (2) THE CAPABILITIES AND LIMITATIONS OF AVAILABLE AND PROJECTED AVIONICS, OPTRONICS, DISPLAYS AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES HAVING A DIRECT RELATIONSHIP TO C3I REQUIREMENTS; AND (3) TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES WHICH WOULD CONTRIBUTE TO A COMBAT VIABLE AIRFRAME. THE THREE RESULTING MODEL MATRIXES WILL BE CORRELATED TO DEFINE THE PARAMETERS AND CHARACTERISTICS OF A COMPLETE WEAPONS SYSTEM WHICH CAN PERFORM ALL THE NECESSARY C3I BATTLEFIELD FUNCTIONS OF A COMBINED-ARMS ACTION IN REAL-TIME AND IN DIRECT CONTACT WITH THE ENGAGED FORCES.
