Mitchell Institute to Release New Study on ISR Forces

The Mitchell Institute will be hosting a Mitchell Hour next month! Dr. Rebecca Grant, Director of the Mitchell Institute for Airpower Studies, recently announced the forthcoming publication of a Mitchell Paper, “Layering ISR Forces.” It will be released at 9:30 a.m., January 17, 2012, at AFA’s national headquarters in Arlington, Va.  

Dr. Grant will present the report with author Michael W. Isherwood, a defense analyst and former A-10 fighter pilot. In this new Mitchell Institute paper, Isherwood has a clear message: US forces have to be extremely proficient at all aspects of Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance because success in future operations hinges on timely, astute combinations of ISR resources. He explains that layering airborne ISR forces is especially intricate because of their different operational qualities and sensors.  

Rebecca Grant is regarded as one of the nation’s foremost air, space and cyber power analysts, with 20 years of experience in Washington, D.C. Among her Mitchell Institute titles are: Return of the Bomber (2007); Losing Air Dominance (2008); and The Vanishing Airpower Arsenal (2010).
