US Army Precision Fires BG(P) Jeff Sorenson AGENDA Precision Fires Why and Why Not? Misconceptions Target Acquisition Equipment Programs Key Planning Studies Underway Challenges Road Ahead PRECISION MUNITIONS -- WHY? All-weather, terrain, and operational environment engagement capability that reduces operational risk by providing immediate responsive fires and scalable effects Minimize collateral damage, especially in urban settings; allows for discriminating use of force Reduce number of rounds needed to defeat targets at all
ranges (same CEP at any range) Reduce logistics footprint and force burden Essential to fulfill objectives of Transformation and Joint opns Compliment -- not replace unguided or dumb munitions PRECISION MUNITIONS WHY NOT? Not every target needs to be destroyed suppression, masking, or harassing fire is often needed to shape the battle Unaffordable if chasing too many programs with limited resources Insufficient numbers if they become the weapon of choice Dependent on sensor system data, rapidly passed networked information, especially when addressing fleeting targets PGM technology is developing ahead of doctrine and infrastructure modernizing weapons without modernizing doctrine may lead to ineffective use of PGMs MISCONCEPTIONS A replacement for unguided munitions but dumb is still good A leap-ahead advantage but temporary since eventually precision will proliferate and put our own forces at risk Leads to quick victory but the enemy does not always behave the way we think we would Technology Will Save Us -- PGMs are not a replacement for sound tactics or strategy (do not confuse the ways and means of war with its end) -- PGMs as the silver bullet but weapons break; human
error; enemy countermeasures; not a replacement for doctrine, tactics, or the human element (leadership; will to win; luck) CIRCULAR ERROR PROBABLE (CEP) 10m 40 10m 10m 35 km 10m 3m 27 10m 10m m 139 m 112
