BACMROUND: The last decade has been seen tremendous strides in the concepts of the defense of North America against manned air attack. The present generation of equipment which has brought about these advancements has introduced great complexity, large integration problems, and tremendous costs. Even before this improved system has been completed or become fully operational, rapid strides in the science and technology of offensive weapons have tended to outflank the Air Defense System. This places before us not only the difficulty of continued effort in conventional Air Defense but also of p.r-oviding for new defense weapons and, in addition, an orderly transition as well as balance. In addition, we expect, in the not too distance future, that potential enemies will bring to bear the most recent advances in science - namely: the use of satellites and other space related weapons. 2. OBJECTIVES: The objectives of the spring meeting of the SAB are: a. To describe and review critically the technological and military capabilities of the present air defense system of North America; b. To describe and evaluate the present and future threat of ballistic missiles to North America, and in light of these evaluation to survey critically our programs and capabilities for defense against ballistic missiles; c. To estimate the time scale and importance of space related offensive weapons (other than ballistic missiles) and to evaluate possible concepts of defense against such threats; d. To review our international political aspirations in order to lay the basis for military policies on North American defense; and, to formulate opinions about the role of the defense of North America in our total military posture; e. To review the problems of civil defense and disaster control; f. To consider the effects of National Civilian attitudes on military defense tactics and policies; g. To estimate the economic effect of providing adequate defense of North America and relate this to possible future military budgets. 3. The entire proceedings will be published under the auspices of,the SAB for record and distribution to appropriate agencies. Approved For Release 2000/05/30 : CIA-RDP79-01048A000100020004-2
