The division of safeguard lately highlighted intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) features as a most sensible precedence for U.S. warfighters. Contributions supplied via ISR resources within the operational theaters in Iraq and Afghanistan were greatly documented in press reporting. whereas the U.S. keeps to extend investments in ISR services, different countries no longer pleasant to the USA will proceed to hunt countermeasures to U.S. capabilities.

The know-how caution department of the safety Intelligence Agency's (DIA) safeguard caution place of work (DWO) has the severe accountability, in collaborations with different parts of the intelligence neighborhood (IC), for supplying U.S. policymakers perception into technological advancements that could impression destiny U.S. warfighting capabilities.

To this finish, the IC asked that the nationwide examine Council (NRC) examine and document on key seen and infrared detector applied sciences, with strength army application, which are prone to be built within the subsequent 10-15 years. This research is the 8th in a sequence subsidized by means of the DWO and finished less than the auspices of the NRC TIGER (Technology Insight-Gauge, overview, and evaluate) status Committee.
