FUTURE WEAPONS PROPOSALS
Projects outlined briefly as part of the USAF's Air Force
2025 study. Known as the "Future Weapons", areas covered
include hypersonic attack aircraft, defensive satellite
systems and laser-based weaponry.
ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSE BOMB
High Power Electromagnetic Pulse generation techniques
and High Power Microwave technology have matured to the
point where practical E-bombs (Electromagnetic bombs)
are becoming technically feasible, with new applications
in both Strategic and Tactical Information Warfare.
INFORMATION WARFARE AND HOLO-TECHNOLOGY
On 31 March 1997, the magazine Defense Weekly ran a feature
entitled, "Air Force Organises For Offensive Info War".
According to the article, the U.S. Air Force has created
the position of Deputy Director for Information Operations.
Such areas of research include equiping UAVs with lasers
to beam viruses into defense systems and holo-technology,
by which 3D images can be displayed on the battlefield.
