This research brief describes work documented in Supporting Expeditionary Aerospace Forces: Expanded Analysis of LANTIRN Options (MR-1225-AF).
Excerpt: The Expeditionary Aerospace Force (EAF) concept is designed to address several changes in Air Force operational needs. In addition to providing the Air Force with greater flexibility for operations, the EAF concept seeks to reduce personnel "turbulence" while controlling peacetime costs. RAND's EAF combat support research evaluates how alternative support structures, technologies, and methods affect EAF capabilities.
