ARTICLE: U.S.A.F. Launches Major Technology Review, By Amy Butler,Aviation Week & Space Technology, Oct 21, 2009
True enough description:
"I don't think in the history of the Air Force we've been at a turning point like this. Maybe the closest was the Sputnik launch," Dahm tells Aviation Week. "What does the Air Force do when it is faced with a radically different future? Part of what it does is reach into its science and technology domain."
Amazing to think the USAF, only a few years ago, was going to rule all through the high-end definitions of net-centric warfare. Problem is, the Gap does not present such opponents.

When you pass the descent point for your destination the Airbus gives you a tone and CAS message along with VNAV bars on your display.
No way that physically alert pilots could miss those signals and tones. They are intentionally loud enough to wake a sleeping pilot......The FAA already thought about this scenario years ago.
"The story makes it pretty clear they were using some form of an internet system on the laptop to access pilot flight records."
Frankly I want to know why it’s okay for the pilots to do that when the passengers are forbidden to do so because “it could interfere with the plane’s communications.”
TEHRAN (Reuters) - A court has sentenced three people to death over street unrest that erupted after Iran's disputed election in June and links to exiled opposition groups, an Iranian news agency reported Saturday.
ISNA news agency, citing the head of the publication relations office of Tehran provincial court, did not identify those condemned, giving only their initials.
It was the first official statement of death sentences in connection with the presidential poll, which the opposition says was rigged to secure hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's re-election, and the huge opposition protests that followed.
( Bush tried to get them PMOI ,removed from the terrorist listing, Europe did delist them. G )
One of the initials given by ISNA matches that of Mohammad-Reza Ali-Zamani, whom the reformist Mowjcamp website on Thursday said had been sentenced to death.
Amnesty International has urged Iran to rescind the death sentence against the 37-year-old, saying in a statement on Friday it feared it would "pave the way for more death sentences against those being tried on similar offences."
Iran regime only releasing the initials and not the charges
indicates their fear and weakness.
Paradigm Intel suggest more Iraqi type suicide bombings
if they are killed.
I've sent many readers to www.annualcreditreport.com, the Web site the government required credit bureaus Experian, TransUnion and Equifax to establish to receive free credit report requests.
But the really annoying problem that consumers ran into in the beginning – the credit bureaus' sales pitches – hasn't gone away, leading the Federal Trade Commission to propose changes in the laws governing free credit reports.
TransUnion spokesman Steve Katz said the company "supports the FTC's efforts to protect the interests of U.S. consumers who are misled by deceptive practices."
The government needs to fix this and fix it fast. Monitoring your creditworthiness has become too important these days, and consumers shouldn't be distracted by this confusion.
