This research was conducted in the Advanced Simulator for Pilot Training (ASPT) to determine Computer Image Generation (CIG) complexity and field-of-view (FOV) requirements for aerial refueling (AR). The adequacy of three detail levels and five FOVs was assessed. Aircraft simulated, in addition to the KC-135 tanker, were the A-10, F-4, B-52, and F/FB-111. Twelve experienced pilots (three per aircraft) served as subjects. Performance measures included elapsed time to criterion, number of disconnects and aircraft control profile. An assessment of FOV position employed for takeoff/landing versus AR was also made. A-10 and F-4 pilots found the visual FOV position employed for simulated takeoff/landing must be raised approximately 12 degrees to accomplish AR. B-52 and F-111 pilots found AR could be satisfactorily performed using the same FOV position employed for takeoff/landing. Performnance measures clearly indicated that AR performance varies as a function of both FOV size and tanker detail level. The larger the FOV, the better the performance. Similarly, the more detailed the tanker model, the better the performance. (Author).

General Chuck Horner commanded the U.S. and allied air assets—the forces of a dozen nations—during Desert Shield and Desert Storm, and was responsible for the design and execution of one of the most devastating air campaigns in history. Never before has the Gulf air war planning, a process filled with controversy and stormy personalities, been revealed in such rich, provocative detail. And in this revised edition, General Horner looks at the current Gulf conflict—and comments on the use of air power in Iraq today.

The Boeing Co. protested the award of a contract to Northrop Grumman Systems Corp. by the Dept. of the Air Force for KC-X aerial refueling tankers. Boeing challenged the Air Force¿s technical and cost evaluations, conduct of discussions, and source selection decision. Because Boeing competed for the contract, it is an interested party for purposes of filing a protest. Under the Competition in Contracting Act of 1984, the government is required to consider protests of contract awards filed by interested parties. In deciding protests, the Congress makes a determination of whether the agency¿s actions complied with procurement status and regulations. Includes recommendations. Charts and tables.

The F-117 Stealth Nighthawk was a truly groundbreaking aircraft when introduced in the early 1980s. The strange shape of the jet, all flat panels and angles, rendered the aircraft nearly invisible to radar. This highly classified program wasn’t acknowledged publicly by the U.S. Air Force until 1988. The Nighthawk was retired in 2008 after twenty-five years of service, including bombing missions over Panama, Iraq during both Gulf Wars, andYugoslavia during the Kosovo war. Brad O’Connor flew the Nighthawk during the NATO bombing campaign over Kosovo in 1999. His first-person experience puts the reader in the cockpit of this revolutionary combat aircraft. From his F-117 assignment through training, deployment, mission planning, and combat flights, O’Connor relates the day-to-day life of a pilot in the world’s first stealth fighter.

A personal history of war from bestselling authors John McCain and Mark Salter, told through the stories of thirteen remarkable American soldiers who fought in the nation’s major military conflicts, from the Revolution of 1776 through the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. As a veteran himself, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and a long-time student of history, John McCain brings a distinctive perspective to the experience of war. With Mark Salter, Thirteen Soldiers tells the stories of real soldiers who personify valor, obedience, enterprise, and love. You’ll meet Joseph Plumb Martin, who at the tender age of fifteen fought in the Revolutionary War; Charles Black, a freeborn African American sailor in the War of 1812; and Sam Chamberlain, of the Mexican American War, whose life inspired novelist Cormac McCarthy. Then there’s Oliver Wendell Holmes, an aristocratic idealist disillusioned by the Civil War, and Littleton “Tony” Waller, court-martialed for refusing to massacre Filipino civilians. Each story illustrates a particular aspect of war, such as Mary Rhoads, an Army reservist forever changed by an Iraqi scud missile attack during the Persian Gulf War; Monica Lin Brown, a frontline medic in rural Afghanistan who saved several lives in a convoy ambush; and Michael Monsoor, a Navy SEAL, who smothered a grenade before it could detonate on his men in Iraq. From their acts of self-sacrifice to their astonishing valor in the face of unimaginable danger, these “inspirational accounts of thirteen Americans who fought in various wars…aptly reveal humanizing moments in such theaters of cruelty” (Publishers Weekly).
