This ebook examines capability applied sciences for changing antipersonnel landmines through 2006, the U.S. objective date for signing a world treaty banning those guns. replacement applied sciences to exchange Antipersonnel Landmines emphasizes the function that know-how can play to permit definite guns for use extra selectively, lowering the risk to uninvolved civilians whereas bettering the effectiveness of the U.S. army. Landmines are a massive weapon within the U.S. military's arsenal however the power style could cause accidental casualties, to either civilians and pleasant forces. New applied sciences may well exchange a few, yet no longer all, of the U.S. military's antipersonnel landmines through 2006. within the interval following 2006, rising applied sciences could do away with the landmine absolutely, whereas protecting the mandatory functionalities that modern mines offer to the army.

The change is based on the conviction that good intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance combined with modern aircraft and weaponry will enable the Air Force to find, fix, track, and target anything that moves on the surface of the earth. Information superiority, along with a command and control capability that can coordinate activities and integrate them smoothly with those of the other services, will be an important factor in the Air Force’s ability 22 ALTERNATIVE TECHNOLOGIES TO REPLACE ANTIPERSONNEL LANDMINES to achieve global-engagement capability.
Just as the Agrarian Age gave us the hoe and sword, and the Industrial Age gave us mass production and mass destruction, the Information Age will give us the means to fight smarter and more effectively. The revolution in military affairs is defined as a major change in warfare brought about by the innovative application of technologies that, combined with dramatic changes in military doctrine and operational concepts, will fundamentally alter the character and conduct of operations. Systems, such as the bow and arrow, the rifled gun tube, or aircraft, that use dramatically new technologies can create a major break with the past (Krepinevich, 1994).
